The Charlotte Museum of History is excited to announce that it will be open for a one-time special public program on Saturday, September 15, 2012 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Admission to the museum will be free, with a $5 admission fee for a special tour of the historic Hezekiah Alexander house (free for museum members). Local historic sites and organizations will be at the museum to share their information with the community. Food trucks will also be here, so come hungry!
Costumed docents at An Historic Evening at the Alexanders’ will give guests a peek into the lives of the Alexander family after the sun went down. Learn about evening meals, activities, and entertaining in colonial times. Sunset is anticipated around 7:30 pm, and visitors are encouraged to bring their flashlights.
This will be one more chance for the community to see Apron Chronicles: A Patchwork of American Recollections before the exhibit travels to its next venue. Apron Chronicles tells the emotional stories of 46 individuals, each of whom have unique memories about aprons and the people who wore them. Adding emphasis and history to these stories, the gallery space features vintage aprons throughout the exhibit.
Visitors are invited to explore the museum’s permanent galleries, including the Sophie Charlotte exhibit which looks at the life of Queen Charlotte – the English monarch that is our city’s namesake.
