Located in what was the original branch of the United States Mint, Mint Museum Randolph opened in 1936 in Charlotte’s Eastover neighborhood as the state’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, fashion, 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 shop offering merchandise that complements both the permanent collection and special exhibitions.


A note to our Mint Museum Randolph visitors:

Fall 2015 is an exciting time at Mint Museum Randolph, with many new installations planned to highlight the strengths of the Mint’s permanent collection in areas such as historic British ceramics , contemporary British ceramics , quilts, European art (paintings), and even a peek into the treasures of the Mint Museum Archives . Additionally, the Mint plans to offer visitors the opportunity to occasionally watch as members of the museum staff photograph some of the nearly 35,0000 objects in the museum’s permanent collection in a behind-the-scenes photography project entitled “Exposed!”  (Please note that while photography will indeed be staged for visitors to watch, we are hoping that other curatorial projects (tbd, admittedly) might take place in that gallery too.)

Because of this busy schedule, some galleries may be closed on the day of your visit as installations are being updated. If you have a particular gallery in mind before your visit, or wish to know if any collections photography will be occurring that day, we recommend that you contact the Guest Services Desk at 704.337.2000 to verify what is on view.
