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 Never Abandon Imagination: The Fantastical Art of Tony DiTerlizzi, and will host the first ever exhibition to focus exclusively on the black basalt sculpture made by Josiah Wedgwood, Classic Black: The Basalt Sculpture of Wedgwood and His Contemporaries.
