I thoroughly enjoy this museum. This is a great place for people whom are new to the area (or the south) to learn history. This is a great place for kids to also experience a time in America that they may not learn about in school.

Really well done taking someone through the history of the Piedmont area. Enjoyed the additional exhibits as well. Very informative and interactive for all ages. There are private events held here periodically so definitely check to see if they are closing early. Took about 2 1/2 hours.

Stopped here after visiting the nearby NASCAR HOF on a Sunday. Admission was half price on Sunday so I only paid $4.00. Parked in the parking ramp next door and had my ticket validated for free parking. There is a 10 minute intro. video to watch and many more videos you can watch as you walk through the exhibits. I...

Easy walk in downtown Charlotte. Rather modern when you walk in, but the "southern" tour is a great depiction of the south. With today's Southern hospitality waning away as more and more people move here to enjoy our hospitality (but do not learn it or respect it or practice it), it was refreshing to walk through this Southern exhibit.

Worth a visit and easy to find at the current end of the Lynx rail network (7th Street). All that's missing, and it is a frequent failing in American venues, is a cafe. Get on the British way....

The unchanging , in 17 years, story of how the wealthy white yankees came down to ignorant white and black southerners and taught them that paradise was working in unsafe mills for terrible wages. The unchanging exhibit is the most offensive one in north carolina, but they have had some good temporary exhibits. There was a showing of cartoons that... More

The Levine Museum has done a wonderful job in showcasing Charlotte through time. I learned so much at this museum. When you enter, there is a video to watch then you go to some exhibits on the cotton fields, processing it and what it was like for those farmers. There are exhibits about life during the Civil War. There was... More

The Museum covers the development of the new south from right after the civil war until today, taking Charlotte as example. A lot to see and try out. From Cotton Spinning machines, to Billy Graham, from fighting seggregation to becoming a City of Banks. Definitely a place to learn somthing about the area and history. But do not fear, even...

We spent a couple of hours touring the museum. I was very impressed with the exhibits. They were tastefully done while remaining true and accurate. I was happy to see some current events addressed on the 2nd floor along with updates. We are all over 60 years of age so we could actually remember some of the items on display.... More

This was a bitter sweet moment for me going there to see the historical significance of the events that occurred in the USA from the Civil War till today. The Civil War was started because of racism and in many forms still exists today despite generation after generation trying to find equality on both sides. This museum is a very... More
