Besides the new accessible pricing, The Levine Museum of the New South announced the launch of a new initiative, Access History, to help bring Charlotte’s history and culture to life for children and families. Access History will offer interactive and educational opportunities to help families learn about the local community through history.
The Museum’s kid-friendly programs will explore Southern, post-Civil War history. Scavenger hunts will help families engage with the Museum’s core exhibit, Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers, highlighting significant events in the Piedmont region since 1865. Family tree and personal history workshops will encourage families to study their own roots. Interactive performances with poets, dancers and storytellers will connect children with art and history.
If you like free parking too, and who doesn’t, park in 7th Street Station, right next door. Bring your parking ticket to the Levine Museum for validation. On weekdays you can validate parking for up to two hours, but on weekends, you can validate for all day, so you can enjoy other Uptown attractions as well.
The Levine is an interactive history museum that focuses on the time period from 1865 until until current times. Its permanent exhibit, Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers: Reinventing Charlotte and the Carolina Piedmont in the New South, invites guests to step inside a one-room tenant farmers house, run a hand through a pile of seed cotton, listen to the churning of the cotton mill, play checkers on the front porch of a mill house, hear personal accounts from local sit-in leaders, and more.
On exhibit through October 22nd is K(NO)W Justice K(NO)W Peace, which is a community-created exhibit about police-involved shootings throughout the nation and in Charlotte.
Co-created with activists and law enforcement, the media, students, clergy and civic leaders, K(NO)W Justice K(NO)W Peace explores the historical roots of the distrust between police and community, tells the human stories beyond the headlines, and engages viewers in creating constructive solutions. The exhibition also captures the voices of local police, protesters, emergency personnel, faith leaders and others reflecting on their personal experiences during Charlotte’s protests.
