The Museum offers virtual interactive exhibit tours for K-12 groups on the days we are not open to the public and in person self-guided K-12 group visits on the days our building is open.
Students can virtually experience one of three thematic tours of our From Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers exhibit on the history of Charlotte, NC and the Carolina Piedmont after 1865 or a tour of our Brooklyn: Once a City Within a City exhibit. Supplemental classroom materials are provided with booked virtual tours. Tours include information provided live by Museum staff, interactive participation opportunities, and a chance for Q & A.
