Virtual Tours Segregated Schools

Groups can now virtually participate in Levine Museum of the New South’s guided tours!  To accommodate the current limitations on travel and field trips, Levine Museum of the New South is offering virtual exhibit tours that include tours of our Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers and Brooklyn: Once a City Within a City exhibits.  Your tour will include unique content on your selected topic, interaction and Q & A with a Museum educator, and supplemental materials that can be used pre or post tour.  You can also create a little friendly competition with post tour quizzes.  Your group will learn about the evolution of Charlotte and the New South through the lens of one of four specific themes.  Once you have booked your program, you will receive an Information Packet that includes a confirmation, technical information and tour specific supplemental materials.  Tours can be adapted for student groups of any grade, adult groups and mixed youth and adult groups.  Curriculum standards addressed are listed below.
