Mint Museum Randolph
Well kept building which is history itself. The museum collection is excellent for such a small place and has artifacts that are locally relevant too. The history of the mint itself is informative but could use updating. The grounds are beautiful. The museum is a bit out of the way and not a place you will come to by chance.
The collection of South American art was awesome. They had this freaky burial urn used during rituals and this sculpture of a shaman wearing the flayed skin of a woman (so Ed Gein). I love this place.
Finally checked it out. Smaller than the one uptown but equally awesome. Check it out.
I'm so glad I went to the museum on the suggestion of a friend. Outside of the unique art collection, the building and the art museum grounds are lovely. The staff, two ladies, were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. They really went out of their way to be kind. I was honestly having a down day and going here really made my day and cheered me up. I love how all the art work is sectioned off in different rooms. The experience is like journey. Probably one of my favorite art museums now.
This museum is MASSIVE and you get to see lots of kinda of art from all over the world. What makes it better is that they have a shuttle going to the uptown mint museum for FREE! I highly recommend it.
