I love going to museums, especially art museums, so I was delighted to learn that Charlotte has several in Uptown when we moved here. But I was disappointed that each charges a big fee to become members. There is no feeling of cooperation among the community of museums. The feeling is disjointed and it affects the exhibits. Every now and... More

Nothing more fun than seeing a Warhol, but 2 and all the Halston fashion. I was in awe of the collection. Took me back in time. The craft exibition was stunning. The glass was impressive. When we got to the body art, just the imagination involved was enough to make you wonder. Great stuff to see, great place to just... More

The Uptown Mint Museum is in a good locale for Uptown visits. Not an extensive museum but nice. Gift shop is lovely.

My girlfriend I visited today and I especially enjoyed the body embellishment exhibit that was on temporary display. Very nice building layout which makes viewing the art a fairly fluid walk through.

The museum has a small but interesting collection. The design is excellent, and the exhibits are well presented.

How fun to see a collection of Halston clothing designs from the 70's and 80's as well as a few of Andy Warhol's paintings! The admission price was only $12! Note: on Wednesdays, Publix supermarkets sponsors the permanent collections for free! The front desk and docents were so friendly and the facility is modern and spacious.

Many steps up to main level (bad back) but very nice modern facility. Great for receptions with a terrace and ballroom and fine service. Good for the whole family. Not the best part of downtown.

Went on a weekday to entertain the wife of a visiting client. We decided to explore both of the permanent collections as well as both of the special collections (Body Embellishments and Halston & Warhol). Well-curated collections are beautifully placed and the calm, quiet environment allowed for personal enjoyment and reflection. We enjoyed it so much that we explored for... More

The woman at the front desk was a peach! She was so polite and engaging and really helped us out. Exhibits were cool to include Warhol and Body Embellishment. Would recommend for a rainy day.
