Went on a weekday to entertain the wife of a visiting client. We decided to explore both of the permanent collections as well as both of the special collections (Body Embellishments and Halston & Warhol). Well-curated collections are beautifully placed and the calm, quiet environment allowed for personal enjoyment and reflection. We enjoyed it so much that we explored for... More

The woman at the front desk was a peach! She was so polite and engaging and really helped us out. Exhibits were cool to include Warhol and Body Embellishment. Would recommend for a rainy day.

Loved the Andy Warhol/Halston exhibit. It was fascinating and well worth the visit. Staff is very helpful. The museum itself is beautiful but the permanent collections here are a bit sparse. I guess I was spoiled by living in Chicago and NYC and going to the Chicago Museum of Art, MOMA, Metropolitan Museum of Art, etc.

Both the permanent and special exhibits were amazing and well worth the admission price. Beautiful, stunning, and vibrant are just a few of the words to describe the collection here. An amazing find and a must see when visiting Charlotte!

We spent about 2 hours with 3 teenage boys and had a good time. Plenty of places to sit and stare, or browse around at your leisure. Not something I would visit frequently, but a great time nonetheless.

Spent a few hours before our flight out of Charlotte at the Mint Museum. A lot of wonderful and unique art pieces to see. Staff inside the museum are eager to answer any question you may have and give you in-depth history on pieces of art within the museum. If in Charlotte, be sure to stop in for a tour.

Great way to spend a couple of hours in the Queen City. Great Location, you can buy a ticket and have access to 1 more museum. Since Charlotte has its history, that is the place to get to know a little bit about the city and its people.

Went specifically for the Warhol & Halston display, they did a great job presenting using a variety of media. After living in Washington DC for over 30 years, I'd say we are pretty spoiled with an endless supply of Museums there. The Mint is small by comparison, but I do look forward to going back - maybe for once I... More

They have 2 huge pieces right in the entry hall that are really captivating. I loved the children's space - it's engaging for adults as well! There are many museums that feel very stuffy and static. The floor of the Mint with the glass, textile, and metal work is fresh and interesting with artwork that you can walk around, looking... More

Woman at front desk was very helpful. She printed out directions for us to visit another point of interest. We thoroughly enjoyed Warhol and Halston exhibit.
