Very informative museum with a great overview of recent history in the South. Also has a rolling list of visiting exhibitions and a lecture series. Very reasonably priced entry, too!

This museum is a perfect time warp visit to life in the South beginning with the Civil War. As a northerner visiting Charlotte, I learned a lot about that time period. As the exhibit progressed, it became more of a Civil Rights theme, ending with...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.
