I went here with my daughter while others in my family were checking out other attractions in Charlotte. This museum doesn't break the bank (reasonable youth admission and educator discounts) and doesn't need hours to explore. We both really enjoyed the mainstay exhibit - about...More

Interesting and small museum with open-minded perspective on The South's complicated history. Worth a visit.

The Levine "Museum of the New South" should be renamed to The Levine "Agenda Driven Revisionist History Museum". It's bad enough American History has devolved within our public schools, but this sort of museum is tiresome.

The exhibits are very well done showing the transformation of Charlotte after the civil war to the present day, at the same time acknowledging the injustices of the past. "From Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers" is a wonderful display. As visitors from overseas we were very...More

It's always nice to get a historic perspective when visiting a city. This museum had "just enough" information to give an good understanding of Charlotte. It was great for first time visitors
