Mint Museum Uptown

Great oil paintings. It depends upon one's like or dislike. Extra clean facilities. Easy to get around - see as one goes.

Great exhibits, great staff, central location and great access for visitors living in Center City. Parking can be a pain, but it is worth it!!!

A charming museum with wonderful objects, focusing both on traditional art--sculpture and painting--but also craft and design, including pottery from a variety of eras. Just the right size, too, for a 80 to 120-minute visit.

I loved our visit to the Mint Museum Uptown. We viewed the permanent collection. If someone at the desk had mentioned the admission to the special exhibits, we would have purchased admission. It needs to be advertised by the staff. I loved seeing the wide variety of art at the Mint. It really gave me an appreciation for different mediums.... More

This museum has two locations and the Uptown version sits in a stunning ultra modern building in the heart of downtown Charlotte. It is small-ish but has a nice collection of art from different periods but really shines for modern art- Glass, Wood ceramics. Like most museums they have a section dedicated to traveling exhibits- Warhal and Halston. The whole... More

This is a nice place to spend the afternoon. There's a good variety of art. Paintings, sculpture, pottery, photography. There were two special exhibits while we were there that were an extra charge but we opted not to see them as it's already a $12 per person entrance fee.

We (2 adults and 1 child - 11 yoa) went to the Mint Museum Uptown on a Sunday afternoon. The front desk staff informed us of the activity packs for kids and we chose one. This was fun, but could be time consuming. We did not finish the pack. I was surprised that no one at the front desk mentioned... More

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
