Charlotte doesn't offer a whole lot to do, but we found this little museum full of interesting history. The displays are well done, descriptions are very good, history is comprehensive & unbiased. The upstairs galleries weren't as interesting but we strolled through all of them.

This place tells the history of North Carolina, civil rights movement and before and after. There are some really interesting things to interact with and read etc. I'd recommend going here if you would like to know the history of NC.
