Our daughters enjoyed the Mint Museum as much as we did. We have been back and will return often. Dinner following is also a treat.

Although it is not located in the down town area, it is a place to learn about art and enjoy an hour or two of peace and serenity. Great art work. It's worth seeing.

Beautiful building, friendly people but heavily American art with not too many names I recognized. A sampling of various types of art. Some important images from the civil rights battles. Not sure it’s worth the trip.

There's underground parking at the building next door (Levine Centre for the Arts) I believe the entrance to the parking is on W. Stonewall St. It's $3.00 per half hour during the day, $5 after 5pm.
