Museums, Charlotte: 16 reviews and 18 photos
If you want to learn about the history of the area, this is the place to go. There are 4 permanent exhibit halls which take you from the 18th century beginnings of the city through modern times. Upstairs you'll find the temporary exhibits. All of the multimedia presentations are offered in both Spanish and English. There is also a research library and reading room upstairs, which is one of the warmest, most perfect places to research in the city. You'll also visit the Hezekiah Alexander house located 500 feet behind the museum, the oldest home in Mecklenburg County. Alexander was a signer of the Declaration of Independence among many other things that I can't remember! Here's a picture of the fountain in front of the museum.
Address: 3500 Shamrock Road
