  • The Uptown location has a lot to offer! A children's gallery for small children to play in, an interesting permanent collection and really cool special exhibitions. I love visiting the Mint - it's a great place for a date or to get inspired.
  • Such a cool museum. There was something raw about the elemental nature of the exhibit that was being shown. I really enjoyed it. Highly recommend going. There's a student / teacher discount too!
  • I visited two Museums while in downtown Charlotte. I was immensely impressed by the Mint. I thought the collection of Contemporary Art was impressive, eclectic and extremely interesting. I immensely enjoyed the architecture the interior spaces for the building as well. The museum is accessible for both an experienced aficionado and the average layperson. While I was there, they were having a special exhibition of theater and television costumes. It was a great exhibition I particularly enjoyed. I hope to return at some point in the future.
  • Small but well displayed collection in a beautiful seeing. I love the building. Great kids programming. Very nice glass pieces and an impressive Chihuly in the entrance area. Wish they had audio guides available and free daily docent tours.
  • Amazing, we visited with friends and few kids. We really enjoyed. I highly recommend this beautiful place.
