2730 Randolph Rd, Charlotte, NC 28207, USA
Spectacular - much larger than I expected. Art history of the world; many genres highlighted. If you enjoy reading display notations, plan on a full day (but no cafe etc. inside).
Nice museum away from the city center, it is associated with The Mint Museum Uptown. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit a couple years ago. Just haven't had the opportunity to return. I forgot now but it's either Tuesday or Wednesday evening offer FREE admission after 5 PM. Great place to visit and check out exhibits.
Great museum with lots of beautiful art. They currently (August 2019) have an exhibit on work by Tony DiTerlizzi which we spent a full hour in. I loved seeing the art from the Spiderwick Chronicles up close!
Had visited the Mint Museum Uptown several times, but had never made it to the Randolph location. It's set in a beautiful park with gorgeous homes just behind the back entrance. I loved reading the very informative and fascinating history of the building and was amazed to hear that the building had been saved from demolition and moved to the present location back in the 30s.It's an eclectic collection - but I happened to love it all: British Ceramics (who knew all this about porcelain?!), African Art (sculpture, masks, adornments) and an amazing collection of PreColumbian Art from Central and South America. I spent about 2 1/2 hours and loved every bit of it. Then enjoyed strolling through the beautiful park-like neighborhood afterwards. Great time - but obviously not for everyone!
The mint was originally founded in 1836 was printing Money downtown they move the building out here to the Randolph location then turn it into Museum in about 1933 - 1936.. a nice to visit
