  • Small museum. They only had one room and a balcony open, with very little on display. They were creating another display, but still charged the full price. Stayed less than 10 mins. 
  • PAid the fee to spend maybe 15 minutes seeing the entire collection on display- maybe 30 items on two floors! The largest floor was closed between exhibits but this is disgraceful - to charge as thoug...  read more »
  • I enjoyed the small gallery. I had plenty of time to see everything and talk to the guides. They were very patient and explained things well. The gift shop has all sorts of unique finds. If you don't ...  read more »
  • Literally the worst museum I have ever been to. They have a visiting display of modern jewelry on the second floor (which is all of the"art" on the floor) and it consisted of about 10 pieces of jewelry. My wife (an artist) and I spent $16 for entry and were done with the museum in 10 minutes (yes we did see everything). Don't waste your time, I have seen better and more modern furniture in nice office buildings. They should have spent as much money on the collection of art as they did in constructing this waste of space.
  • I was visiting Charlotte and exploring downtown when I decided to see what this museum had to offer. It was $8 and change to get in and all of the art was on the 3 floors above. I'm no art expert, but there was nothing that awe inspiring about anything here. The paintings and serigraphs were few and half of the "art" exhibits were just pieces of 1960s furniture. There was literally an entire section dedicated to office chairs. A staff member was on every floor & they graciously greeted what guests were there but not surprisingly, nobody seems to have any questions about what they were seeing. There seemed to be more space set aside for museum offices than exhibition. The building itself inside and out was nice to look at, and that was the most exciting thing about my visit.
  • Great museum with captivating exhibits that are constantly updated. Great for a date! Wine and jazz some nights
  • They had good authentic art by famous modern artists such as Sam Francis and Joan Miro, two of my personal favorites. Whoever complains about the kind of art they have clearly doesn't understand the genre.
  • Enjoyed a nice hour long break from reality. Beautiful building and great staff.
