“A nice surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

If your time is short, do not miss the 3rd floor with a beautiful display of glass and other artisan crafts. I went twice, as the initial ticket was good for two days. This beautiful museum embodies the entire experience of Charlotte itself, much more than expected!

“Balanced, easy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

This museum showcases the flavor of this lovely city. This was my zillionth trip to Charlotte if you count the airport, but my first beyond that. It's a small museum, but the quality and variety of the works were curated with a great deal of care.
There is a lot of seating, plenty of restrooms, and a gift shop that had a large variety of interesting things beyond the stock that you'd expect.

There's a complimentary coat check.

“A different take on art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

This museum focuses on art of different styles, from clothing to furniture to craft exhibits of all kinds. The building itself is an architectural wonder, worth the price of admission just to admire it. Ideally situated near other museums and points of interest as well.

“Wonderful design and craft collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

The 3rd floor craft and design collection was beautiful. The collection was well displayed and had excellent documentation about the artists/craftspeople as well as video showing the creation of many of the works. Well worth a couple of hours of your time in Charlotte.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Your ticket will cover 2 museum's-one downtown and one on Randolph road. It was good for 2 days. The Mint Museum Uptown has a variety of exhibits that are a delight to the eyes. Well worth the cost to get in. They also have a hands on area for Children/Family Room. Everyone enjoyed playing and creating in here.
