The museum might underwhelm people who have been to big-city museums that are filled with blockbuster artwork. However, for families with kids under 10, you can not beat the activities on the Family Day once a month. Cool art projects, top notch supplies, instructors, all tied in to a current exhibit. A great "hands-on" room for kids is off the... More

I took my great niece here for the Halston/Warhol exhibit. We really enjoyed the exhibit! It was tastefully done. It included clothing, videos and other artifacts. The museum itself is quite small. I thought we would be able to spend the majority of our day here but there just wasn't enough to see. I would still gladly return to another... More

This is one of the best museums I have ever visited. There is a fun educational play area for children. On the floors above you find artwork and crafts that will astound and captivate any art lovers interest. Also for Bank of America customers the promotion of free museums for card holders allows for free access on certain days.

some interesting pieces, some.....not so much. We took our time, looked at each exhibit. Warhol and Halston exhibit were there and we paid the $24 entry fee and then was told the Warhol thing was $24 extra. Bah Humbug. :) Anyway. I left underwhelmed and really surprised at how little there really is to do in Charlotte if you want... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the wide array of beautiful artwork, craftwork, pottery, glass and more. The fee of $12/adult, if you save your receipt, will cover the cost of visiting the Mint Museum Randolph as well. Many other museums and a convenient parking garage located nearby. Certainly worth spending a couple of hours savoring.

This museum is a must see! It has such an unusual collection of modern, contemporary, craft and design art that I was absolutely blown away. The staging of the art is astounding. As a photographer, I was really impressed that one could take a picture and not have other pieces of art in the way. So glad to have had... More

This is a really fun museum to visit when in Charlotte. The entry fee is very reasonable and you get a lot of art for your money. The gift shop is extensive and it is hard not to buy something. There is a parking garage just around the corner so that makes things easy.
