Mint Museum Uptown

The Uptown location of the Mint Museum opened in 2010 and offers a more modern look at art and design. The museum houses the internationally renowned Craft + Design collection along with contemporary American and European art. The Mint Museum Uptown is an integral part of the Levine Center for the Arts, a cultural campus that includes the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts and Culture, the Knight Theater, and the Duke Energy Center.

After checking out the 5 stories packed full of art, you may want to check out the restaurant or gift shop at the end of your trip. This location is closed Monday and Tuesday and has varying hours throughout the week. Use their website to check out the new exhibits and guests coming your way!

Mint Museum Randolph

The Mint Museum Randolph opened in 1936, christening the building as the oldest art museum in NC. In the federal style building that once housed the Charlotte Mint, you can find many artifacts of the ancient Americans. The museum hosts a library with over 18,000 volumes and a theatre for lectures and musical performances. After your visit, the historic museum has a gift shop to highlight the permanent and special exhibitions. This location is also closed Monday and Tuesday and has varying hours during the rest of the week. Check out their hours and more information to plan your exciting and educational trip!
