The Museum is open to the public one Saturday a month for socially distanced Afternoon on the Grounds experiences. Visit the Events page to purchase tickets for an upcoming Afternoon on the Grounds.

The Museum building and galleries, the 1774 Alexander Homesite, and the grounds are not open to the public except during Afternoon on the Grounds events. In the meantime, you can learn about Charlotte history through the Digital Learning page, where you’ll find free virtual exhibit tours, lecture programs, and family and school programs.

You can help us continue to serve our community, enriching lives through shared understanding of the past and inspiring dialogue about the future. Please donate to the Museum today.

Our Commitment to
Social Justice & Equity

As historians, we believe it’s our job to hold up a clear mirror to history, showing us who we are and how we can be better.

As a result, we’ve made seven commitments going forward, and we invite you to read those here.
