  • The museum provides a detailed history of the past 150 years of US South. Give yourself at least 90 minutes. It does not shy away from the shameful episodes the post-Civil War era. I found myself...

  • Very neat. Loved the interactive displays. Plenty of stuff to see. Well worth the money. Big enough to keep you busy. We loved it.
  • Fascinating local and regional history, well presented. As a visitor to Charlotte, I came away with an understanding of how and why Charlotte grew through railroads, cotton mills, commerce and banking, all with an honest discussion of race relations and social injustice. Time well spent.
