Join the Museum for a special opening day celebrating our new temporary exhibit “A Better Life for Their Children: Julius Rosenwald, Booker T. Washington, and the 4,978 Schools that Changed America. Photographs & Stories by Andrew Feiler.” This exhibit tells the story of one of the most significant moments in the history of philanthropy and education in the rural South – the Rosenwald Schools program. A photographer and fifth-generation Jewish Georgian, Andrew Feiler drove more than 25,000 miles across the South to document this important history. That work became A Better Life for Their Children, a book of photographs, stories, and essays published in early 2021, and this accompanying exhibit. The book will be available for purchase in the Museum gift shop. On opening day, general admission to Museum will be 100% free and open to the public.
The 1774 Alexander Rock House is now more accessible than ever! The Charlotte Museum of History has created a 360 degree virtual tour of the Revolutionary-era home, giving visitors insider access to the historic home’s interior, as well as spaces not ordinarily open to the public, including the home’s basement and the nearby springhouse.
Each 360Tour purchase includes self-guided access to the tour and a digital guidebook.
