Stopped by here on a Wednesday evening (free admission after a certain time). Wow, what a delightful experience. An impressive variety of artistic mediums on display. A must see in Charlotte.

I visited the museum for the 1st time 2y ago. It's very nice, not too big, but it really worth a couple of hours visit if you like contemporary and modern art.

Wished the Randolph location of the Mint Museum a few times over the years. First visit to the beautiful Uptown location. I loved the survey of American fine art, but it is in crafts that this museum really shines.

We attended a nicely catered wedding at the Mint. Great location for those kind of events. You can head off and see some of the art work at your leisure.

We visited after a FAB brunch at halcyon next door. Spent two hours wandering around. Tip? It’s cold in the medium (for the art apparently) so take layers

We were only able to see the Mint’s uptown location, so I don’t know how the collection fits in with the other site. I found it a little disjointed, with one floor of unfinished space holding a (?) student exhibit on tech/art, one large floor...More

There's underground parking at the building next door (Levine Centre for the Arts) I believe the entrance to the parking is on W. Stonewall St. It's $3.00 per half hour during the day, $5 after 5pm.
