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.

Really nice architecture highlights the artwork. The collection is nice, but not extra special. Easy to navigate.

Very nice modern museum. We enjoyed the exhibit on the Panama Canal, which was interesting and full of facts. The museum had a few Church and one Rockwell and similar paintings. Glad we went.

This museum was an unexpected gem in the middle of the downtown area. The building itself is interesting, and I really enjoyed the beautiful paintings. The art is quite nice even though there may be some lesser known artists.

This is a beautiful museum with lots to see. It's beautiful both inside and out. Not necessarily good for kids but teens and adults will love it.

After attending an interesting special event the Museum held about local writers and their books, we decided to tour the Mint's special exhibition on The Panama Canal. It was wonderful! The selection of artists' renderings of the building of the canal were exceptional. I was particularly intrigued by the works of Frederick Church and Alson Clark, accompanied by descriptions in...
