Field Trips

Bring Local History to Life For Your Students

Give your kids a one-of-a-kind adventure to Charlotte’s past! Join us at the Charlotte Museum of History as we explore the history of our region through a series of interactive journeys. Visit the 1774 Hezekiah Alexander Homesite and our collection of unique artifacts that tell the story of Charlotte’s growth from a sleepy hamlet in the Carolina Backcountry to the major metropolitan city it is today. Your students will experience history up close and personal as they learn about the life of a backcountry patriot in early colonial Mecklenburg, join the American Revolution in Charlotte, learn how to survive on the edge of empire, and more!

We can schedule your field trip Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. We deliver most programs on-site at the Charlotte Museum of History, but we can also travel to your school for a nominal additional fee. Need a program delivered outside of our standard hours? Let’s talk about it!

New field trips coming soon! Please email Mea Agazio, Education Specialist, at for more information

Financial Assistance

We know that the cost of a trip can sometimes be a barrier to visitation for a few of our students. Thanks to a grant from the Charlotte Woman’s Club and a donation from Van & Kay Weatherspoon, we have a small pool of funds available to help offset the cost of a few tickets and make it possible for everyone from the school to attend. These funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. To request consideration please complete this form and our K-12 Education Specialist will be in touch shortly. Please note, these funds are intended to help supplement existing fundraising efforts currently undertaken by our schools and are not intended to cover the cost of an entire trip.
