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...

I was surprised with the quality of the Mint Museum Uptown. For being a branch in the same city, I expected the Mint Museum Uptown to be one of two things. A cast-off second class museum or a specialized branch targeted to a specific audience that can be found in or around Uptown. So, I was pleasantly surprised to find... More

While this is not a huge museum its contents were amazing. The exhibits were well displayed and laid out. As a woodturner, I was very surprised at the number of lathe-turned projects they had on display, such detail and craftsmanship! The rest of the museum exhibits were so cool and unique. Well worth the price we paid for admission ($12).... More

While my husband I were visting Charlotte, we decided to go to the Mint Museum. We expected it to be good but we were actually, happily surprised at just how good this place was. The art is amazing! It has something for just about everyone's tastes. The modern and contemporary collection was astounding, and my favorite. My husband loved the... More
