  • Levine Museum of the New South
    The interactive, engaging exhibits at the Levine Museum of the New South trace the history of Charlotte and the Carolina Piedmont from 1865 (when the Civil War ended) to today. The exhibits share the diverse stories of those who have shaped the region and those who continue to reinvent it. Visitors leave with a deep understanding of the profound changes the South has experienced. Central Exhibit: The museum pivots on its main attraction, an 8,000-square-foot exhibit called Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers. It boasts interactive, immersive environments where visitors explore more than 1,000 artifacts, images, and video clips to learn how the South has changed from the end of the Civil War until today. Through the Eyes of History: In the main exhibit, visitors can sit at a Civil Rights–era lunch counter while they listen to stories told by leaders of sit-ins. Hands-On Features: Visitors can plunge their hands into seed cotton and play checkers out front of an old mill house. They can also don clothes in an early Belk department store and expand and rearrange the museum's collection of images via touch-screen photo album. Temporary Exhibits: Upstairs galleries feature traveling and temporary museum-created exhibits ranging from Civil Rights photography to LGBTQ history. From the Press: According to the New York Times, "the achievement of the Levine Museum of the New South . . . should not be underestimated. . . . There is an appealing integrity in the way the museum takes on its subjects." 2015 Charlotte Magazine Best of the Best Winner: "With every exhibit, Levine Museum of the New South reminds us of our past while illuminating today's voices."

  • Carolina's Aviation Museum
    The world's very first working airplane took flight at Kitty Hawk, making North Carolina a natural place to explore the world of aviation. Almost the entire story of flight unfolds here at Carolinas Aviation Museum, from the development of commercial and military planes to privately owned aircraft. It's not all about the technology, either—the museum places heavy emphasis on the human stories behind these marvels of engineering, including heroic Vietnam War veterans. Don't Miss: the "Miracle on the Hudson," the US Airways plane that Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger safely emergency-landed in New York City's Hudson River in 2009 Size: a 40,000-square-foot hangar with an active ramp area that allows visitors to take guided tours of the planes The Building: though the visitors' area is in a newer hangar, the original building—the first commercial hangar in Charlotte from 1938—can still be seen across the runway Eye Catcher: once the fastest plane in the world, there are only two D-558-1 Skystreaks still in existence, and one is here at the museum Permanent Mainstay: it might not be the flashiest plane at the museum, but no trip here would be complete without seeing the original breaker of gravity's bonds, the Wright Flyer
