500 S Tryon St, Charlotte, NC 28202, USA
This place is amazing.. I love art and love this place . It's a place where all types of art is showcased. They also gives the community the opportunity for you to play a role in the showcasing by voting and even gives the community opportunity to add their art. The people who works there are very informative of the art and pieces. Just go and look around.
Great museum for contemporary art fans! I loved the featured exhibits they had. Small museum but good. General admission ($10.00) is pretty reasonable (student discounts are available with school ID- $8.00) I would say you could see all the highlights of this museum in 1 hour and 30 minutes! Skip the gift store though! In my opinion it is overpriced although some things are a good deal. But you will pay tourist prices! I do recommend this museum for older adults, middle aged and older people. Not really a kid museum though (go to the NASCAR Hall of Fame for the kids).
Charmed by the massive yet beautiful outside, we were treated to a truly exciting and compelling collection. We loved the American art, with sprinkles of costumes and sculpture, going from early America up to contemporary art. The spaces are open and flexible, with nice touches and perfect lighting, inviting you to linger at your favorites (and we had several). The craft/sculptural floor is also stunning, with a few massive works and small works that you simply want to absorb. We even loved the temporary installation! Just a great find for anyone visiting downtown.
Great museum. Mostly modern art but they do have a nice section of American Art that is dated. Some pieces are interactive while others follow themes. Definitely worth a visit while in Charlotte.
If you're a fan of Modern Art, then this is a must-see when you're in Charlotte. There is some traditional art at this location, but it is the Modern Art that tis the most stunning. It is well presented in a series of galleries that are spread over three floors, with both elevator and escalator access. The museum is located in the heart of downtown (they call it "uptown") with parking right next door. The Museum Store is unusually large for a smaller museum like this, and although a bit pricey, they have a good selection of items related to art and the museum.
