This museum had some great art work and is certainly worth the visit. It costs about $14 for me and my husband together as we had a coupon. It didn't open until 11:00 on Saturday which was strange. Across the street in the bank building is a small Wells Fargo history museum which is interesting as well.

This art museum is next to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and across the street from the Harvy Gantt Center which also houses an art collection.

Saw an excellent exhibition of women photographers and their shoots around the world for National Geographic. Beautiful and moving.

Wasn't planning a museum visit on my weekend with friends who live in Charlotte but glad we did. Terrific museum with lots of great permanent and visiting exhibits. Especially loved the featured exhibit of works from women photographers from National Geographic. Spent hours viewing every photo and story. Brilliant. The Mint is definitely worth a visit.

Recently visited this museum and was really not disappointed. They have some nice collections of modern day art. Especially liked their collections of glass shapes. At 17 dollars the museum is not very cheap, but you get to visit a second location for free. The whole museum has a modern/bright feel. We spent about 2 hours in the museum, without... More

The collection here is not like typical art museums, and it's definitely worth the trip. From intricately carved wooden vases to a piece made from old dishwashers...there is a little something for everyone!

We were so pleased to be able to see this gallery. What a beautiful building! There's a great variety of work. They have these really near backpacks for kids to help them explore the gallery. This is worth a stop of several hours.

The location downtown was very convenient. We visited on a Sunday and found free street parking. The curator of this museum has a special talent for displaying very interesting things. There are two pieces by Chuhuly that are very different than his usual style. Thoroughly enjoyable visit.

While my husband and son were at Charlotte Motor Speedway I took in the Mint and was so glad I did. So many beautiful things! The craft displays were outstanding. It was easy to spend a couple of hours.
