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.

We started with the ancient American art. I was fascinated by the variety of pottery; the interesting patterns, colors and subject matter. This is an interesting gallery that made me want to learn more about that period in the Americas history.

Had some time to kill. Very eclectic space with many interesting pieces & fascinating history. We were on vacation & there's no Ripley's or Madame Tussaud's museum nearby.....

This museum is on beautiful grounds with helpful staff members. Think about bringing a picnic to enjoy before heading inside. The collections were excellent and never skimpy. Your ticket also allows you to visit the sister museum Mint Uptown and there is a shuttle between the two. If you have a Bank of America card your visit is free on... More

Wednesday night's are free but we visited the Mint Uptown Wednesday night and paid the modest admission to see this location another day. While this building was much older and didn't have the amenities such as a delicious restaurant and really good gift shop, the quality of the ceramics made our visit more than worth it. Their permanent collection has... More

This is an awesome historical museum, mostly of pottery and China. There are three floors of very interesting art. My favorite was the South American and African pieces, because they were ancient. Not very many paintings. Warning, it is cold in there. I was caught Ina prior thunderstorm and was soaking wet and I was freezing and kind of rushed... More

This museum holds pre-colombian artifacts, ceramics from around the world, clothing from different designers and centuries and paintings by well known and lesser known European artists. I love it when they have a special exhibit for the public. Inexpensive but a nice outing for adults and young adults interested in art.

The most unfriendly museum that I have ever visited. As a retired teacher of forty years, I have visited all kinds of places on fieldtrips. I know the typical behavior of children in the four to preteen age group. There were six adults and seven children visiting this museum as a family. From the minute we entered, the frosty attitudes... More
