  • The museum is smaller than it appears. The fourth floor is the largest floor of art. The art is great with diverse offerings.  more »
  • If you like 20th century American and European modern art, this museum is worth the price of admission. Sure, it could have a few more pieces by a few more artists. But, remember that this is not New ...  more »
  • Giacometti drawings are wonderful. Not so huge Museum, so that one feels not overloaded, if not hineinegeht, should look at at least Niki St Phalle s fire-bird in front of the Museum.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • The art was not very impressive, most of it looked like something I could do. But it was set up great and the building was cool.
  • It is so tiny, they could probably fit all their pieces in a studio. Crazy expensive for what they have too. Staff is nice, but that's about it.
