Great musuem, showing the evolution of Charlotte from a mill oriented economy to the current financial mecca it has become. Very neat tidbits of information throughout that are relatively unknown to most. I highly recommend a visit to any local charlotte area native and transplant...More

This museum is terrific. It tells the story of the south and its people from the Civil War to the present time. Cotton mills, civil rights, electrification, the development of Charlotte, banking and commerce, music of the region, and religion are just a few of...More

Although not from North Carolina, the Levine Museum of the New South was a powerful and insightful experience. The exhibits were well-done and flowed nicely from the past (post Civil War) to the present-day struggles. A great afternoon for the family with older children.

Had a few hours to kill before a flight out, and as a northerner looking for some southern history this was just the place. I think my favorite element of this museum was the neutral, fair telling of history presented. I also appreciated the span...More

I really enjoyed the visit. There was quite a bit that I knew a little about from my hometown area. Very interesting museum. 7th street market is right around the corner too for some good eats/quick coffee.

You can learn about cotton production and labor movement in U.S. in early 20th century. Amazing how it grew to be such a nice city today.

This beautiful museum is clean, modern, and easily navigated. We enjoyed following the main exhibit, which outlines southern history after the Civil War, at our own pace. The museum was practically deserted on a weekday afternoon so we were able to spend as much time...More

This small museum packs alot within, including a special exhibit going on now about police-involved murders, and the localized aspect of what happened in fall 2016 in Charlotte. Really well-done, engaging and very, very sad to see. The mainstay exhibit is about Charlotte's history, and...More
