  • This is an eclectic museum with some art but a lot of porcelain and costumes. It also has a large collection of pre-Columbian artifacts. The best thing right not is an exhibit of African fabric. Very ...  more »
  • This partner museum to its art branch in the Levine Centre, is well worth the free entrance after. Fascinating china and pottery collections and unusual exhibitions.  more »

  • I love how all the art work is curated. Great Selection and always enjoy my visits.
  • The collection is nice - better than most of the other Charlotte museums. But I would not recommend making a special trip for the Mint. I would recommend going to The Triangle and exploring art there (for NC art). The facility itself is amazing: large, the art is displayed wonderfully, and well staffed. And, there seems to be a good amount of events for the public.
