This is another great museum to visit although, not as relaxing as Mint Museum Randolph since it's in downtown. You have to pay for parking in an underground garage. Still it features wonderful works of art.

I took in the Ralph Halstead and Andy Worhal exhibit and it was a bit quirky but a good day still. It gave me an opportunity to see the Mint Museum and I'm glad I stopped in....Will likely go again when another special exhibit is in town.

The special exhibition was the Moschino which was just mannequins wearing fashion clothes as I understood it. We skipped it. Admission was reasonable and they had a discount for students. The museum itself is rather large with five floors, but there just isn't a lot to see. A lot of empty space. We did see an Andy Warhol but nothing... More

Admission was reasonable. I paid an extra $6 to access the special exhibition which was Moschino. I felt the special exhibition was average. The stark layout of the fashion pieces lent nothing to them. It was very plain and like little to no thought went into the displays. I would have rather been transported into a land of Moschino where... More

The museum is very aesthetically appealing from the outside as well as the inside and is an awesome stop for any architecture lover. However, the selection of art available to the public for free is limited, so make sure to have some cash ready for some extra tickets. Overall is is a great spot to visit and make sure to... More

Nice Museum but limitted exhibits available. If you're an art lover or want to soak up some culture; purchase the joint pass for mint, African Museum. The museum is also in a great location.

The uptown location of the Mint Museum limits you to just a couple of galleries on free days. The others are at cost. The second location (also the original one) has free access to all galleries on certain days. The collections seem random, but worth going for free, for sure. Just check on what's there before you go.

This museum is special not only for its varied & interesting art collection but also b/c the architecture of the building itself is so engaging! We were fortunate to see the "America the Beautiful" special exhibit. We also enjoyed the permanent collection.

An Art museum that is not that special. It has some interesting art and craft galleries. I liked the American Art area the best. There is a fee, plus you have to find a place to park and pay for that also. There is a gallery store and a good resturant attached. Wednesday is a free day, tha would be... More

I visited the museum on Wednesday night, which is free. The museum is organized by medium: wood, clay, glass, etc. Then, there is a collection of American artwork; one by Robert De Niro's dad, who was a somewhat-famous artist. I don't know how much the admission is normally, but I was very happy with seeing the museum for free. There... More
