There is a wonderful exhibit of period clothing, as well as a nice exhibit of ceramics the the history. I was a potter and found this... More

This is really a great combination of American Art in one location. Especially the glass sculpture exhibits were so creative and enjoyable to see. This art museum has a great mix of art for a family to visit as everyone doesn't like the same type of art collections. Highly recommend that if you are visiting Charlotte to take time to... More

My company held meetings, a reception and social gathering at the Mint Museum. Venue is very good, comfortable. the food was, well, fantastic. I was sorry that we were going to dinner later at Wolfgang Pucks downstairs later, as I could have just eaten the appitizers and been heppy. Service was quick, polite, classy. They offered a tour of a... More

This is a really nice museum. They have a wide variety of exhibits ranging across many different genres of art. The price is very reasonable and I would definitely recommend this museum for both casual art viewers as well as advanced art viewers.

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.
