The building itself is beautiful, and apparently they change out the exhibits fairly regularly. The three exhibits that we saw in December were very interesting and thought-provoking. Doesn't require as much time as some of the larger art museums, which makes this a nice stop...More

We have a tradition of bringing our expanded family on outings in the Charlotte area every year over the holidays. After Christmas I brought my parents, siblings, and all of our kids to the center. The exhibits were interesting and conscious-raising. The staff were welcoming...More

We took the Light Rail downtown and visited the site. We were excited about going because of all the things we had heard about this place. Unfortunately there were only two exhibits open that day leaving us very disappointed. We did get a discount on...More

Were just visiting friends in the area and decided to have a quick look round Charlotte, $5 entry each only for this interesting centre. Some great artwork and photography and a video/audio exhibition gave us a good couple of hours entertainment

This museum is housed in a very modern building and it rotates exhibits on a fairly regular basis. We saw a photography one on oppression and another featuring black men sharing their thought on what it is to be black. Both very interesting!

This gallery is located in a beautiful building, but it doesn't have much to offer. There are only two floors and only one has an exhibit, which is totally dark where you have to use a flashlight to see the works.

Informative. The pictures in the dark room were very moving. Pictures depicting desegregation, the first black girl going to an all white school. The gift shop had some cute things to buy.

This was our second visit since last year and offered totally different exhibitions. All were excellent with different themes and a wide and varying representation of African-American art and artists. On this visit, the gift shop was being re-stocked, but the young woman at the...More

Nice gallery with informative and unique exhibits, $9 entry per adult. If you prefer more interactive art this isn't the best gallery but it's still nice!
