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.
This is really good museum. This has lots of verity from mint to pottery to arts and many more. There are 2 mint museums in Charlotte one is near to uptown and another one is this one on Randolph RD. Every last Sunday of the month there party in park with free entry to the museum And live music with food trucks
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.
I enjoyed my visit. Very educational. The staff pleasant and welcoming. Will visit again. This was my first time but not my last.
My experience was horrible. For some reason me and my sister were followed around by security guards the whole time like we were going to steal a painting or something. It was extremely insulting. I will never ever go back to this horrible place again and I suggest no one does unless you like being stalked by guards that have nothing better to do than judge you.
There are portraits of Queen Charlotte and King George III here. The original artist (Scotsman named Ramsay) did the faces, but they are copies. I also find the gold coins minted in Charlotte back in the 1800s interesting. This building was a mint, and Confederate headquarters and hospital in the Civil War. It was saved from demolition and moved from uptown to its present location in 1936.
