While the Museum building is closed to the public to support the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers we invite you to virtually visit some of our exhibits.

We hope you will join us to see these spaces in person once we reopen and resume normal operations.

This program is recommended for adult audiences, but may be enjoyed by younger audiences with adult supervision.


The 1774 Alexander Rock House

Continuing Exhibit

We are celebrating milestones of our Stone-by-Stone matching campaign by releasing new virtual tours of the historic homesite for free to the public. Thanks to a match from the Weatherspoon Family Foundation, now through June 30, 2020 all donations to The Charlotte Museum of History will be matched up to $75,000 – your gift will go twice as far. Please consider donating today to double your impact.
