Located in what was the original branch of the United States Mint, Mint Museum Randolph opened in 1936 in Charlotte’s Eastover neighborhood as the state’s first art museum. Today, in a beautiful park setting, intimate galleries invite visitors to engage with the art of the ancient Americas, ceramics and decorative arts, fashion, European and African art, among other collections. Resources include a reference library with over 18,000 volumes, a theater featuring lectures and performances, and a museum shop offering merchandise that complements both the permanent collection and special exhibitions.

If you like pottery/cermaics, this location is very nice. Wide variety from ancient times to mid 1800's. Location of Museum is nice with park like setting for the grounds. You do get admission to the uptown Museum which is a 15 minute ride away.

I'm a life-long Numismatist (look it up if you don't know) and for me the history of this building as a branch US Mint was the first attraction. They clearly acknowledge the history of the building, as a mint (1837-61), an Assay Office from 1857-1913...More

With my wife visiting me, we decided to go to the Mint. The grounds are very nice and they could be a draw in itself. The museum was a nice diversion for a couple of hours.

Took advantage of the free admission on Wed night and spent 90 minutes there. The collections have a focus on European ceramics, with a very good job of explaining what you see, and the historical context of the pieces.
