Museum Exhibits and Programs

The Charlotte Museum of History offers audience-focused programs and exhibits, based on the people, buildings, stories, and objects spanning the region's history, while providing an historic context for understanding how conditions and decisions of the past impact the region today and shape its future.

Population(s) Served

The Charlotte Museum of History celebrates Charlotte’s Black history and culture during its annual free African American Heritage Festival. Events highlight North Carolina's HBCUs, the African origins of popular American cultural traditions, local Black business, and more. Last year's festival was a combination of virtual and in-person events that explored dance, visual art, historic memory, and enslavement and segregation through the stories of those who lived here.

Population(s) Served
People of African descent
Families

Each year on July 4, the museum partners with USCIS to welcome new citizens to the United States. The event includes the Oath of Citizenship, voter registration, activities for children, and more.

Population(s) Served

The Alexander Rock House is the last standing home of a framer of North Carolina’s first Constitution and first Bill of Rights. Finished in 1774, the building is a testament to the craftsmanship and ingenuity of its creators, the labor of enslaved people, and the last remaining structure of Charlotte’s Revolutionary history. Interpretation focuses on daily life at the homesite, including the stories of Hezekiah, his wife Mary, their ten children, and at least seventeen enslaved people.
