Modern art is not my forte, but from what I saw, this museum houses some of the most famous of modern artists. For the price, I would suggest everyone visit. They offer plenty of discounts so check them out prior to going.

This museum is beautiful itself, the temporarily expositions are really good and they usually have fashion and woman related expositions.

We visited two temporary exhibits on Women's Expressionism Painting and Fire-In-Ice, dramatic glass sculptures that combined astounding artistry and incredible technological capabilities. The Mint itself curated and arranged the Expressionism exhibit, showing increasing capabilities. The museum is easily accessed, the building and space are dramatic, and the staff is most helpful. My wife and I highly recommend regular visits.

Enjoyed whole museum, but especially the decorative arts and craft + design collections. The Dale Chihuly chandelier is stunning! Your ticket is valid for 2 days, admits you to both Mint museums with a free shuttle running between the two locations. Hold on to your ticket receipt, it will get you a discount into other museums in Charlotte!

A really fine regional museum with a surprisingly strong collection including the great Romare Bearden. The current exhibit of women abstract expressionists is incredible Free on Wed from 5-9 pm

Beautiful space filled with a survey of American art, another survey of Modern art and a couple of contemporary exhibitions. Not crowded at all.

This is an enjoyable visit to a museum dedicated to the decorative arts. Well curated. Centrally located. Unfortunately, the entrance price felt wildly out of pace with other museums in the downtown area. While the museum is nice, I am not sure it rightfully commands such a high entrance fee.

We were here for a private event, a wedding reception. The venue is lovely and easy to park and navigate. The reception had an indoor and patio area which was nice to cool down outside after a dance or two. Food was catered in. Unfortunately the museum was closing when we arrived so that we were unable to view exhibits.
