I am not typically a museum person, I'm not sure why. I LOVE this museum! There so many different types of media -- there's a wall piece made from old washing machines that looks like ripples across water. There are playful ceramics. There's a smooth, wooden, maybe 10 foot piece that resembles a giant slug. And of course, there are... 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

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.

Worth repeated visits, as the galleries are constantly changing to display a broad range of art. Couple this with a stop at one of the many excellent restaurants nearby to make for a very memorable day.

On our second visit to the Mint, I came to appreciate the Mint for more than time killing in a city devoted to sports, dining, and traffic jams. The permanent collection allows you to absorb several eras and disciplines, from mixed-media to sculpture, textiles to portraiture, some of which reflects on the Queen City and others a more global perspective....
