We were in Charlotte for one day, Monday. This museum offered free admission for MLK Day and ongoing planned family and adult activities.

We visited on a cold, rainy Sunday. It was the first Sunday of the month so we got in free with free parking, a nice surprise. (A donation is suggested, but no pressure.This museum is worth a nice donation.) The exhibits are well laid out with video, recorded information, and written information . We spent two hours learning much about... More

This museum is a must see! Charlottes history is deeply rooted in cotton, slavery, civil rights, and textiles. It is rich history presented through sophisticated multi-media techniques. The displays are well-researched, very interesting, and fascinating. This is a small but powerful attraction.

What a fabulous exhibit, well curated and narrated. The museum fills a very necessary gap in US history. I learned so much about the South since the Civil War. Well done. Allow 2 hours for reading and watching movies.

The museum is very creative it's a beautiful walk and learn from inside. The items they have is amazing and any one can learn from this museum. This is a trip that any one can learn from and it's just minutes from other destination in down town Charlotte, nc.
