The museum has temporarily moved to digital-only events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These virtual events are free, together with new digital learning opportunities for children and families available on our Digital Learning page.

In times of crisis, champions like you have ensured the future of Charlotte’s history. This time, The Weatherspoon Family Foundation will contribute up to $75,000 as a challenge grant. Through June 30, the Foundation will match donations up to that amount – so your gift can go twice as far.

Contributions to this special campaign will empower us to continue serving our community, enriching lives through shared understanding of the past and inspiring dialogue about the future.

The Museum made the difficult decision to cancel our spring fundraiser, Colonial Gem.

Your support is now more important than ever to ensure the future of The Charlotte Museum of History and our service to the community.


Unfortunately, The Charlotte Museum of History cannot offer refunds for cancellations made less than 30 days in advance. Thank you for understanding.
