Beautiful museum, definitely worth a look. Gives a good look at the stark realities of slavery and the post Civil War era in the south. They have a number of interactive displays and are updating and changing them from time to time. Enjoy the lectures, panel discussions, book signings, workshops, walking tours and much more. I always tell our children that we need to remember our past to make for a better future. From the website: "The New South means people, places and a period of time — from 1865 to today. Levine Museum of the New South is an interactive history museum that provides the nation with the most comprehensive interpretation of post-Civil War southern society featuring men, women and children, black and white, rich and poor, long-time residents and newcomers who have shaped the South since the Civil War."
