Very good displays and a great historical perspective of the South. I found it very informative. I would highly recommend this for anyone new to the area. Appropriate for young adults but don't think very young children would enjoy this although I could be wrong.

In the city on a business trip and had some free time to roam the city. Found this great little museum with history of the city and the south. Some additional exhibits on local issues which were also very good and informative. I recommend it.

Educational and meaningful museum depicting life in the region post civil war. From cotton to segregation to modern Charlotte.

Although not from North Carolina, the Levine Museum of the New South was a powerful and insightful experience. The exhibits were well-done and flowed nicely from the past (post Civil War) to the present-day struggles. A great afternoon for the family with older children.

Had a few hours to kill before a flight out, and as a northerner looking for some southern history this was just the place. I think my favorite element of this museum was the neutral, fair telling of history presented. I also appreciated the span...More
