Mint Museum Uptown reviews
Well worth the visit. Without crowds, about 2-1/2 hours to see all of it will suffice. Definitely a must-do in Charlotte more »
We loved that this museum was open in the evening, especially since so much else was closed at night downtown. The art was interesting and enjoyable. The area around the museum is lovely... more »
Charmed by the massive yet beautiful outside, we were treated to a truly exciting and compelling collection. We loved the American art, with sprinkles of costumes and sculpture, going from early America up to contemporary art. The spaces are open and flexible, with nice touches and perfect lighting, inviting you to linger at your favorites (and we had several). The craft/sculptural floor is also stunning, with a few massive works and small works that you simply want to absorb. We even loved the temporary installation! Just a great find for anyone visiting downtown.
If you're a fan of Modern Art, then this is a must-see when you're in Charlotte. There is some traditional art at this location, but it is the Modern Art that tis the most stunning. It is well presented in a series of galleries that are spread over three floors, with both elevator and escalator access. The museum is located in the heart of downtown (they call it "uptown") with parking right next door. The Museum Store is unusually large for a smaller museum like this, and although a bit pricey, they have a good selection of items related to art and the museum.
