My husband, our 17 year old daughter and myself went to the Mint Museum with our Bank of America bank cards in hand because we could get in free!

This is a surprising find for a city the size of Charlotte. It is a testament to the deep pockets of the corporations based here. The Mint has a little bit of everything in American art, from Colonial to current. I am a fan of Chihully and that is what drew me. There is a nice collection of contemporary glass.... More

I was amazed at the talent in this place. Great displays for anyone interested in art. A wide range of styles and hours of enjoyment. It was better than I expected and worth the money. Works on any day you are looking for an indoor activity.

This is no small town museum. The Mint has progressive exhibitions presented in the Uptown space, and what a cool space it is. Plus Halcyon Restaurant is at the front door so you can het an amazing lunch or dinner or glass of wine before or after your museum visit. The permanent collection is well installed and there's something for... More

Very beautiful works of art in the Craft and Design section and the American art section. Glass work was gorgeous and the word work in burl wood just fascinated me. But the pieces that made you think and wonder were a sculpture and large sculpture of a man and women up on the wall on a slant. Just great place... More

As a former designer and father of a shoe designer, I thought that a field trip to The Mint Museum Uptown was warranted. Having been to larger, notable art museums, I was wondering how good this museum would be. While it isn't as big as other top museums, the caliber of the facility, quality of exhibitions, and engagement of the... More

The Mint Museum Uptown's collection, like the Mint Museum's Randolph location, is not vast, but is of high quality. Admission to the Randolph location also includes admission to the Uptown location, but the locations are about a 15 to 20 minute drive apart. The exhibitions spans some earlier American works, but the museum's strength is definitely in its modern art.... More
