Mint Museum Uptown#2 in Best Things To Do in Charlotte
One of the many museums representing Charlotte's exploding art scene, the Mint Museum Uptown is home to a wide variety of American and European art. This is the second Mint Museum location; the first – Mint Museum Randolph –occupies the original branch of the United States Mint on Randolph Road (in the city's Eastover neighborhood). The building in Uptown houses many contemporary exhibits, including a traveler-approved collection of costumes and textiles. There's also the world-renowned Craft + Design Collection, a special collection of international studio glass, fiber, jewelry, furniture, wood and clay art (recent visitors said this section is a must-see).
The museum floor is larger than the map lets on, according to reviewers, so set aside a good chunk of time to explore all the mediums the Mint has to offer.
You'll find this branch of the Mint on South Tryon Street, just west of the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art – a convenient location for past visitors. Mint Museum Uptown welcomes visitors from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday and Friday; from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
