    Absolutely Incredible Day

    I cannot say enough about the Levine crew. Brittany was so easy to work with and made sure the entire day went off without a hitch. The space is incredible and there are so many different areas that can be used as a dinner space or dance floor or cocktail space, etc. My guests thoroughly enjoyed getting to see the exhibit on the first floor and it really added some extra fun to the event. Thank you to the entire team!

    Sami,
    Thank you so much! It was such a pleasure working with you. We are still in awe by the way you incorporated your love of beer into your decor. Cheers!!

    Perfect in every way!

    Venue is amazing, staff is amazing, can’t say enough about this place. They made our wedding everything we could have wanted and more! The events manager, Brittany, is really on your side and there to help. The open exhibits are great for out of town guests. Their are various options for whole museum rental, downstairs only, and more to work with your budget!

    Best Venue and Events Team

    The Levine Museum is a beautiful venue with skylights in the atrium and a lot of Charlotte history. It is a great value compared to other locations in Uptown Charlotte. Brittany and team were extremely helpful from the first day we met. She made sure everything was perfect and did an amazing job coordinating everything. We are so happy we chose the Levine Museum and had the chance to work with Brittany and her team.
