  • Modern & contemporary in a beautiful space. Items are not crowded together permitting individual examination. 
  • This is a small museum and only takes an hour or so to see the whole collection (and read everything). But for a family collection, the Bechtler museum packs a punch. Be sure to see Warhol's "Marylyn ...  more »
  • It was a nice place to visit. The displays were great. However it has fewer pieces than it appears, so we completed our visit extremely quickly. Don't plan to spend longer than 1 hour there.

  • 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.
