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.

It's not exactly what I expected, I think I expect more but overall this was a very nice gallery. Great work up on the walls. Just expected to see more history paintings or artifacts. The staff was freely. Very nice visit!

I took my cousins here when they visited from out of town. A beautiful facility and we enjoyed the exhibits. I also learned that there are EVENTS at this location. It's not likely I'll attend any since I only go downtown when family is visiting....More

This was not what I was expecting, but interesting none the less. Some of it was not to my taste and some I found fascinating. It is a small place and does not take long to wander around.
