Located in uptown Charlotte, the Mint Museum was established in 1936 as North Carolina's first art museum.

The museum has one of the largest art collections in the Southeast and has been inspiring the community for decades. The Mint Museum Uptown houses the Craft + Design collection, which is internationally renowned, and American, contemporary, and European art. The facility contains four stories of masterpieces and stunning visual displays. In addition, they have permanent exhibitions along with rotating displays to keep you coming back.

Gantry Center for African-American Arts and Culture, and the Knight Theater for free from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm. So make reservations online to sign up for a time and enjoy the beautiful art.
