“Lovely afternoon at The Mint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Wasn't planning a museum visit on my weekend with friends who live in Charlotte but glad we did. Terrific museum with lots of great permanent and visiting exhibits. Especially loved the featured exhibit of works from women photographers from National Geographic. Spent hours viewing every photo and story. Brilliant. The Mint is definitely worth a visit.

“Nice collection and modern!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Recently visited this museum and was really not disappointed. They have some nice collections of modern day art. Especially liked their collections of glass shapes. At 17 dollars the museum is not very cheap, but you get to visit a second location for free. The whole museum has a modern/bright feel. We spent about 2 hours in the museum, without getting bored.

“Unique Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The collection here is not like typical art museums, and it's definitely worth the trip. From intricately carved wooden vases to a piece made from old dishwashers...there is a little something for everyone!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We were so pleased to be able to see this gallery. What a beautiful building! There's a great variety of work. They have these really near backpacks for kids to help them explore the gallery. This is worth a stop of several hours.

“Wonderful museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

The location downtown was very convenient. We visited on a Sunday and found free street parking. The curator of this museum has a special talent for displaying very interesting things. There are two pieces by Chuhuly that are very different than his usual style. Thoroughly enjoyable visit.
