Mint Museum Randolph
- Open Now
Located in what was the original branch of the United States Mint, The Mint Museum Randolph opened in 1936 in Charlotte's Eastover neighborhood as North Carolina's first art museum.
Sadly this is not a museum to bring kids too. There are just too many inappropriate items that I dont want my children staring at. I do enjoy their temporary exhibits that they change out. I enjoyed the fashion one they had before the most. I also like the fine China room wit all the pretty tea pots and plates. But, otherwise there is just not a lot of art that is worth seeing. If going, I definitely recommend the free nights they have every Wednesday after 5pm.
The Mint Museum on Randolph Street is lovely. It has a lot of history and culture from all over the world. The staff is very professional and inviting. The grounds are beautiful. If you're looking for quiet inspiration this really fits the bill.
Our first visit. The ladies up at the front are very helpful and sweet natured. The museum shop is packed with neat gifts that support the art. We really enjoyed this museum! Exquisite art and a very neat area for local Charlotte artists to exhibit their work. There was a lovely wedding being set up and we got to witness a groom have his photos taken. This place is definitely a must see!
1 full floor and 2 half floors. Interesting mix. Can be done in little over an hour. Ticket here is also good for the other location and for 48 hours. Bletchley will give you a discount and vice versa.
This is a pretty good museum and definitely worth the visit if youre in Charlotte! The layout is a bit awful, and it is on the smaller side compared to some art museums Ive been to, but it was a great stop on my list! (You will spend an hour or so here) Admission prices are fair, but it can be pricy with a large group of people. Definitely check out their free nights (great date night) and ask if they have discounts. Im military affiliated, and showed my ID, and got in free! Overall, its a good museum and worth visiting. Be prepared to look at a lot of pottery!
