Located in what was the original branch of the United States Mint, Mint Museum Randolph opened in 1936 in Charlotte’s Eastover neighborhood as the state’s first art museum. Today, in a beautiful park setting, intimate galleries invite visitors to engage with the art of the ancient Americas, ceramics and decorative arts, fashion, European and African art, among other collections. Resources include a reference library with over 18,000 volumes, a theater featuring lectures and performances, and a museum shop offering merchandise that complements both the permanent collection and special exhibitions.

The price was reasonable. My son enjoyed himself and is very interested in going to more museums based on what he saw here.

Very nice facility, immaculately maintained. A true survey of western art from Renaissance to now. Smattering of textiles, modern items from Africa, exhibit of Latin American items. Worth a visit. Not crowded at all.

We started with the ancient American art. I was fascinated by the variety of pottery; the interesting patterns, colors and subject matter. This is an interesting gallery that made me want to learn more about that period in the Americas history.
