Mint Museum Randolph
Located in what was the original branch of the United States Mint, Mint Museum Randolph opened in 1936 in Charlotte’s Eastover neighborhood as North Carolina’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, and 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 store offering merchandise that complements both the permanent collection and special exhibitions.
Mint Museum Randolph showcased the well-regarded traveling exhibition The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta, and the African-Print Fashion Now! A Story of Taste, Globalization, and Style. Currently on view is Never Abandon Imagination: The Fantastical Art of Tony DiTerlizzi.
