  • Although it is not located in the down town area, it is a place to learn about art and enjoy an hour or two of peace and serenity. Great art work. It's worth seeing.  more »

  • Definitely one of my favorite places in Uptown. The Craft Museum is amazing and they have a great variety of programming for the community. The Family Gallery is so much fun and a regular stop for us when we're in the area. Wednesday nights are free, and parking is a flat $5 on the weekends in the underground parking!
  • I recently visited the Mint and had a great time, however I have to rate it in contrast to other major city Art Museums, which tend to have larger collections. I would take 2-3 hours max to make it through this museum and think it's a must do in Charlotte
  • An interesting museum containing art and artifacts from across the nation. A lovely exhibit highlighting costume design was opened when we visited. It was a great place to visit on a rainy day.
  • Fancy schmancy. Fun gift shop. Great area in the city. Lots to do around here
  • As always, a wonderful place to take my family when I come home to visit!
