An excellent museum. I did not expect such an informative interactive museum. We visited during COVID restrictions and it did not prevent us from enjoying the exhibits more »
I really enjoyed the next exhibit this museum has called "know justice know peace" it was great to see police brutality examined up close and personally. It was a touching experience and I loved seeing the things that have happened since and people who actually want to make a difference. It was honestly one of the best museum especially with how it relates to current issues. There were also exhibits that covered people who had been hung in Charlotte and the racial segregation within school districts. It was great to learn about and I hope a change is made. The museum was great though.
The museum isn’t big but it is filled with a lot of information. You will not be sorry. On Sunday you pay half price. There is garage parking next door that they validate. We went a block afterwards an ate. Bought a magnet for my refrigerator out the gift shot. This is a smaller museum but it’s really well done. Spent a couple of hours here reminiscing about the history of the south. Small kids won’t really get it but it will be very thought provoking for the adults.
