Mint Museum | Charlotte NC Travel & Tourism
The official travel resource
Beyond the walls that display the art, that separate the collections, that house the lights and descriptions. Beyond the walls between the artist’s intentions and the visitor’s interpretations, between what you see and how you feel, between what was shared and what you’ll share with others. Beyond the walls you’ll find The Mint Museum.
An internationally-renowned institution, The Mint Museum is dedicated to collecting, conserving, exhibiting, inspiring, publishing and protecting important works of art and design from all over the global art community. Our commitment to integrity, leadership and innovation intends to encourage not only the understanding of diverse peoples and cultures, but respect for the impact and influence they’ve had on each and every one of us.
Through our two locations, Mint Museum Uptown and Mint Museum Randolph, we hope to stimulate the senses, ignite inner passion and compel our visitors to share the things that inspire them with the world. Just as our artists do.
