Charlotte is home to an art museum of international renown, known as the Mint Museum.
After a number of years spent on planning and construction, the museum finally opened its doors to the general public on October 1, 2010.
The Mint Museum of Craft + Design and the Mint Museum of Art have brought their respective collections under one roof for the first time ever thanks to the new facility that spans 145,000 square feet (13,500 square metres) and houses both of these institutions.
The Mint Museum is committed to preserving and promoting the artistic and cultural heritage of our region as well as the world.
This mission is accomplished through education, the collection, exhibitions, conservation, research programmes, and community partnerships.
There is something for everyone at the Mint Museum, regardless of whether you are an avid art lover or just passing through Charlotte.
It’s one of our favorite things to do in Charlotte and is a must visit attraction.
