We went the this museum for the body embellishment exhibit. It was so not worth the money. It was 25 dollars a person and the exhibit was literally just pictures of tattoos on people's bodies. There were like 6 pictures and most of them were of the same person. Totally not worth the money. It was a nice art museum,... More

This is a good museum and a good value. Entrance to the uptown museum gets you into the 2nd location also and is good for 2 days. Pictures are allowed of most of the collections and the collections are well diversified. One of the docents in the first room gave us an interpretation of a painting and pointed out all... More

We really loved this museum! The staff was very helpful, it had wonderful pieces exhibited. The glass and wood artwork was amazing, as were so many other pieces of artwork. It was a fun tour through a quiet but exciting museum--I'll leave the opening piece you see when you go through the doors a surprise ;o)

This is a nice museum in Uptown. There is a lot of American art in various mediums. Loved the glass and sculpture sections. The works on paper exhibit was good too.

This museum was a complete surprise with it's modern building and differentiated art collection. Especially love that there are typically two different rotating exhibits aside from the permanent art collection. We were there for 1.5 hours before we had to leave for a reservation, but could have spent much more time. This is a don't miss, whether you have 30... More

Wonderful collections of various art, with special exhibits. Spend the extra couple of dollars above the admission price and become a member. by doing so, you are essentially gifting your admission price and getting a tax deduction at the same time. For a real treat, complete your stay with a visit to Halcyon on the second floor.What an exciting restaurant!... More

Went on Wednesday evening, discount night for special exhibits and wine discounts. "works on paper" exhibit really fabulous. Beautiful prints from world reknowned artists. Etchings, dry point, monoprints, woodblocks & lithographs. A small charmer by Norman Rockwell when you first enter - look for it. Did NOT care for the "Body Embellishments" exhibit - wigged me out! Under skin piercings... More

We had only a few hours to tour Charlotte, eat and move on. We had about 1 1/2 hrs. to kill before our dinner reservation at Halcyon, the wonderful dining adventure located outside the Mint door. It was dreadfully hot out and we had already walked the 4 blocks that comprises "Uptown", but I nicknamed "Bank town". The entrance fee... More

I wish our city had this for teens. Our teenage daughters did a fashion class there and really enjoyed connecting the art to their creation. The instructor was knowledgable and easily related to teens.
