    What a great museum. it is as good as they get. Yes, it isn't NYC, but the venue is very impressive and has many discounts for many kinds of groups.  more »

    Its modern art, so you really have to be in to it, or else it looks like random garbage. Its kind of stuck up, and the workers will follow you around and skulk like you don't see them peaking around corners at you.

    Fantastic variety of art. From classical pieces to very modern cubism, they have it all. Definitely worth your time and money!

    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.

    Contemporary art is definitely not my thing.

    They have freaking pablo Picasso drawing, Andy Warhol too! I enjoyed it but it was a very small museum. I would recommend going to the mint right next door unless you're a huge fan of Picasso

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.
