Access History

At Levine Museum of the New South, we believe that understanding history is essential to building a just, equitable and informed community. Regardless of income, everyone should have access to Charlotte’s rich history and culture. And, for people of all ages, a visit to the Levine Museum of the New South can be just plain fun.

The Levine Museum of the New South will launched a new initiative, Access History, to help bring Charlotte’s history and culture to life for children and families, regardless of their ability to pay. Access History offers family-friendly programs that explore Charlotte’s post-Civil War history through:

  • Scavenger hunts and hands-on experiences in the Museum's core exhibit, Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers
  • Family tree and personal history activities to encourage families to study their own roots
  • Interactive performances with poets, dancers and storytellers to connect children with art and history

The Museum now offers family-friendly admissions pricing:

  • $2 admission (plus sales tax) for EBT (electronic benefit transfer) and WIC (Women, Infants and Children) recipients, with a maximum cost of $10 (plus sales tax) per family
  • A maximum admissions fee of $30 (plus sales tax) for all families of 10 people or fewer
  • 50 percent discount on all admissions every Sunday
