Good art museum
Jun 2021
I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived and learned there was no entrance fee for the day. I explored four flours of various art pieces.

Eclectic collection of contemporary art

Well worth the visit. Without crowds, about 2-1/2 hours to see all of it will suffice. Definitely a must-do in Charlotte

nice modern museum in a great location open at night
Oct 2020
We loved that this museum was open in the evening, especially since so much else was closed at night downtown. The art was interesting and enjoyable. The area around the museum is lovely, especially the park across from it with all the book-themed sculpture. Really lovely.

Surprisingly good!

I'm an annoying travel snob. I've seen world class art and masterpieces in France, Rome, Netherlands, and more. Seeing that I was in Charlotte North Carolina, I walked in with very low expectations...but in the end I left feeling enlightened and impressed. They've got a little bit of everything...classic paintings, sculptures, fashion and some weird contemporary modern art that old conservative people hate. $15 might seem like robbery for your cultureless in laws who be rather be home watching the "game", but I found it all fascinating.

Art displays
Feb 2020
I didn't bother to investigate and thought this was a money mint, which is what it used to be and where the name came from. Now it is an art display. To art lovers, it's probably wonderful; to me who has little appreciation for art, other than some paintings,it was a waste of time.

Inspiring!

A must see if you visit North Carolina. The art is beautiful and educational. They have modern, historical, and contemporary art. Be ready to spend at least two hours. You won’t regret it. They have AAA and senior discounts.

Interesting and well displayed exhibitions.
Jan 2020
This museum was very interesting, it had a very relaxing atmosphere, perhaps because I am more used to big city museums, but I found it just as well curated. The visiting contemporary exhibition by Studio Drift was interesting and original especially the dandelion lights. It has a very good gift shop and restaurant.
