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.

This is a medium sized museum based around the history of post Civil War in the South. Lots of interesting exhibits including a number of very well laid out 'historic sets'. Definitely worth visiting.

Really enjoyed the history, the layout of the museum flows throughout the timeline, lots of visuals and hands on so good for kids too. Really felt like you had a good overview of Charlotte and the surrounding areas.

Cottonfields to skyscrapers is an outstanding exhibition that depicts the story of the southern people from the Civil war to present. Exhibits are perfectly done and audios and videos reflect the pace of time. The Museum has a free parking lot for visitors.

We didn't have much time in Charlotte and we were unsure about visiting this museum, but I'm glad we did! A lot of interesting pieces are on display, building a long and well-composed journey in the history of the South.

This museum is very interesting but not too rambling. It covers many interesting and important developments in the South - especially Charlotte of course - after the Civil War, for example the textile/cotton industry, segregation, Civil Right Movement, ... Would definitely recommend going there!

This museum explore the South's growth post Civil War. The exhibits were very informative. The special exhibit addressing urban/police violence was well done and thought provoking. This is not a museum for small children wanting fun things to do.
