The Mint Museum Uptown is one of the most iconic venues in Uptown Charlotte for hosting unique events. Our major event spaces include a stunning atrium with five story large glass panels, a top floor ballroom that includes an over sized terrace with sweeping views of the city, and an industrial space that can hold up to 500 guests.
This place is ridiculously beautiful. Security isn't too overwhelming. I wonder how cool it is to be an art museum security guard. You get to just walk around art all day. Anyways all of the art, exhibits, and installations are extremely beautiful and thought provoking. All staff is friendly, the environment is clean, and there's lots of space! Will definitely comeback to finish my tour!
The art here is very profound and original. They have something for every audience and I happened to arrive on a free Saturday which was super cool. I would definitely recommend this museum it takes about an hour to two to explore fully depending on your pace.
This museum is awesome! There are five floors. Floors 2-5 have galleries. Floors 3-5 have the most interesting art pieces. Most artworks have written stories explaining the origin of the piece. The fifth floor is dedicated to displaying the work of local artists. I highly recommend the Mint Museum. The only complaint I had was that they only offered $5 off parking. They didn't have a voucher for full parking validation. Parking is $3/half hour.
Beautiful 5-story museum with artwork separated by mediums (glass, wood, metal, etc). The floors are very manageable and a visit will take you around 1.5hrs altogether. I would suggest going when there is also a featured exhibition open on the other side of each floor.
Found some pieces that I really enjoyed. It's a small museum and you can walk through and look at everything in about ninety minutes. Admission is $15 but you do also get entry into the other Mint museum in Charlotte within 2 days. Conveniently located and plenty of metered street parking in the area. Not a lot of people on a Tuesday.
