  • I'm so glad I went to the museum on the suggestion of a friend. Outside of the unique art collection, the building and the art museum grounds are lovely. The staff, two ladies, were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. They really went out of their way to be kind. I was honestly having a down day and going here really made my day and cheered me up. I love how all the art work is sectioned off in different rooms. The experience is like journey. Probably one of my favorite art museums now.
  • This museum is MASSIVE and you get to see lots of kinda of art from all over the world. What makes it better is that they have a shuttle going to the uptown mint museum for FREE! I highly recommend it.
  • Much larger than I imaged! Cleanly laid out and a magnificent grounds to explore. Remember that a ticket is good for two days at both this location and Uptown. Free shuttle between the two I hear!
  • Loved the exhibits. The building is beautiful and the staff accomodating and friendly.
  • Very heavy on pottery, not my thing. Found it to be a bit boring.

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.
