Graphic reading: "Let Queen Charlotte be your guide. Queen Charlotte is helping guide visitors safely through The Mint Museum’s collections and special exhibitions. "

We are excited to open our doors to the public and welcome you back to the Mint, where we believe in the power of art and that art is for everyone. In response to COVID-19, we have put new guidelines in place to help protect visitors and staff while at the museum. We hope you will use this page as a guide to help plan your next visit to the Mint.

Both locations of The Mint Museum offer free admission every Wednesday from 5–9 PM. Use the buttons below to reserve a free ticket.

Free Wednesday Evenings are generously sponsored by Publix Super Markets Charities, Bank of America, and Mint Museum Auxiliary.

Stay Safe While Viewing the Galleries

Welcome back to the Mint! Your comfort and safety are important to us. Because of that, we’ve made some changes.

What We’re Doing:

• A low- to no-contact check in, including online ticketing and touch-free payment options.

• High-touch areas, such as water fountains and the Lewis Family Gallery, have been closed.

• All public-facing staff now wear masks and gloves.

• Increased cleaning and sanitizing, especially in high-touch and high-traffic areas.

• Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the building.

What We Ask of You:

• Maintain 6-foot social distancing at all times.

• Wear a mask. We have free disposable masks available at the front desk.

• Have a fever? Been in close contact with someone with COVID-19? For the safety 
 of other museum-goers, please return 
 another day.

• Wash your hands frequently and take advantage of our hand-sanitizer stations.

• Notify our staff of any concerns or questions.

If you are experiencing any of the following—fever of 100°F or higher, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, other respiratory symptoms, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste and smell, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea—please stay home. If you have been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days prior to your visit, we ask that you please plan a visit to the museum at a later date.

Tickets & Hours

To help ensure everyone has a safe visit to the museum, we now require timed ticketing with two to three available time slots each day. There is an hour break between time slots to allow time to wipe down high traffic areas.

Tickets may be purchased online and a scannable code will be sent to you. Upon arrival, guest services staff will scan your timed ticket at the museum to start your visit. If you arrive before your scheduled ticketed time at Mint Museum Uptown, feel free to wait on the terrace or visit the Mint Museum Store, or enjoy the patio and lawn at Mint Museum Randolph.

If you are unable to purchase your ticket online, in-person purchasing is still an option, but there is a limited number of visitors permitted per time slot. At this time credit or debit cards are preferred for payment. Cash transactions are discouraged, and Apple Pay is not available.

What if I’m late for my timed-ticket reservation?

If you are late for your reservation, you can still enjoy your visit. If your ticket is for 11 AM-11:30 AM and you arrive at 12:00 PM, you will still be admitted but you might have to wait for the next available time if we are at capacity.

Do members of The Mint Museum need to reserve timed tickets?

No, members are free to visit the galleries by showing their membership card or mentioning their names at the guest services desk.

Did someone say shopping?

The Mint Museum Stores are open at Mint Museum Uptown and Mint Museum Randolph. Store staff are ready to help you shop for the perfect gift for a loved one or treat yourself to something special.
