Levine Museum of the New South

The Access History initiative will offer interactive and educational opportunities to help families learn about the local community through history. The initiative also expands access to Charlotte’s underserved communities through reduced admissions prices.
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.
The Museum will offer reduced admissions starting July 1, which include:
· $2 admission for EBT (electronic benefit transfer) and WIC (Women, Infants and children) recipients, with a maximum cost of $10 per qualifying family
· A maximum admissions fee of $30 for all families of 10 or less
· 50 percent off admissions every Sunday
Located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, on the corner of Seventh and College Streets, Levine Museum is one block from the Lynx Light Rail, ImaginOn and many family-friendly restaurants. The Museum validates parking to Seventh Street Station Parking Deck.
