I really enjoy this museum in particular. It is always interesting to see what different showings they have. I love art and design so I take my time when I'm there enjoying it all!

“Not a coin museum”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Just okay...wouldn't go again,or take out of town guest here. My fault for thinking it was a coin museum. Kind of present day weird stuff.

“Vibrant Night Life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

So many restaurants & night spots to choose from. Interesting enclaves of unique residences sprinkled in amongst several hotels and office bldgs. Very Clean and seemed super safe, (bank guards all up & down College St.). Surprising numbers of people on the street in the wee hours moving from bar to car or to restaurants with 'late nite' menus.
My first trip and it was mostly all business. I will go back for pleasure.

“Strange art museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

The building itself is nice. Veterans get in for free certain days which is awesome! Some of the exhibits at the Mint Museum were nice. Most were weird. There were some that actually had animal carcasses on them which I found disturbing, not artful. I know, art is subjective, but dead animals? Really?
All in all, it was worth it to go once, but I would have no desire to go a second time, even when they redo all the exhibits.

“beautiful venue in the heart of uptown charlotte”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a wonderful facility smack in the heart of uptown charlotte. The rooftop balcony and rental space is great for weddings and other events. The pieces throughout the museum are definitely worth the time to see.
