Activity Overview

The Levine Museum of the New South explores the history and culture of America's southern states since the Civil War with a particular focus on North Carolina. They have one major permanent exhibition that covers a total floor space of around 8,000 square feet along with a regularly updated series of special exhibitions. Alongside this they host different events which are open to the public and educational programs for all ages.

Things to Do

  • Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers is the museum's principal permanent exhibition. It uses Charlotte and its surrounding areas as the centerpiece of an exploration of the major changes that have occurred in Southern society since the end of the Civil War.
  • The exhibit is filled with interactive re-creations of places that made the scene of important moments during that time. So you can walk through the Good Samaritans Hospitals Chapel, one of the very first African American hospitals sin the South, sit at a lunch counter to hear about the civil rights sit-ins and lend a hand at an old cotton mill.
  • The Museum's store sells books and memorabilia related to Charlotte, North Carolina and the subjects of the various exhibits on display. You do not need to pay admission to the Museum to enter the store.
