  • The museum itself has primarily mounted displays to read, along with a nice diorama of Charlotte in the 1700s and some lovely antique furniture. Nothing really interactive, although there’s a great...

  • I took my 4.5 year old and 10 month old and we had THE BEST TIME! We walked around the property, had lunch, then played a bit in the child space before taking the guided tour with Nolan. I cannot even begin to tell you how outstanding and engaging Nolan was!! So much knowledge, so much fun, and clearly a lot of interest and passion for what he was sharing. The fact that my 4 year old hung out for over an hour was astounding. Thank you for such a fantastic experience. Overall a simple place, easy to get around, nice grounds. The giant bell that chimed on the tour was also a hit.
  • I was visiting over from San Diego to see a friend and I was NOT disappointed when I came to visit! The museum was gorgeous and very informative, the staff handled everything very effectively and efficiently (especially Alea! Thanks again for helping me out and telling me where to visit while I was over there), and the history just felt like it came to life! Visit if you can and thanks for hosting me while I was there!
