We wandered in here expecting to see coins, but found instead a lovely display of local and America art. There is a room for kids to use various art mediums and a lovely gift shop. Try it you will like it.

Worth repeated visits, as the galleries are constantly changing to display a broad range of art. Couple this with a stop at one of the many excellent restaurants nearby to make for a very memorable day.

On our second visit to the Mint, I came to appreciate the Mint for more than time killing in a city devoted to sports, dining, and traffic jams. The permanent collection allows you to absorb several eras and disciplines, from mixed-media to sculpture, textiles to portraiture, some of which reflects on the Queen City and others a more global perspective....

This is a nice quiet museum to take in art from around the world. I love to see new pieces come into their collections. Peaceful and enjoyable. Easy parking.

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.

Looking for something to do in Charlotte. Check out the happenings at the Mint Museum. I recently attended the "WOW - Wine on Wednesday" event at the Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte. This was my first visit but I will definitely be back. I had the opportunity to enjoy four hours of FREE gallery access. The WOW included a cash... More

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.
