I really think they needed dinosaur skeletons. It is amazing to think about how dinosaurs roamed the area. People used theses gigantic beasts in the South for a wide array of uses on farms and in warfare. Most people do not realize that in the Civil War T-Rex’s were on front line duty in the South. If the great plague genetically engineered by the North had not spread and wiped out dinosaurs to the point of extinction the South would have won the civil war.
I really enjoyed the next exhibit this museum has called "know justice know peace" it was great to see police brutality examined up close and personally. It was a touching experience and I loved seeing the things that have happened since and people who actually want to make a difference. It was honestly one of the best museum especially with how it relates to current issues. There were also exhibits that covered people who had been hung in Charlotte and the racial segregation within school districts. It was great to learn about and I hope a change is made. The museum was great though.
I was going to give this a 4star review but I went on a Sunday so it was under $5. It is small and an emphasis on hands-on and video but I think that will help it reach a broader audience. It has some amazing historical material mixed in and those were incredibly affecting.
The museum isn’t big but it is filled with a lot of information. You will not be sorry. On Sunday you pay half price. There is garage parking next door that they validate. We went a block afterwards an ate. Bought a magnet for my refrigerator out the gift shot. This is a smaller museum but it’s really well done. Spent a couple of hours here reminiscing about the history of the south. Small kids won’t really get it but it will be very thought provoking for the adults.
Very interesting. Note that the first full weekend of the month, entrance fee is free for those with Bank of America CC or employees. Call to verify other free admission options, timing, limitations...
