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 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, 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 shop offering merchandise that complements both the permanent collection and special exhibitions.

From now through November 21, 2015, it's an exciting time of transition, as the museum is in the process of the first re-installation of its historic ceramics collection in nearly 40 years. Please excuse any inconvenience as several galleries are closed for re-installation, and mark your calendars for the openings of Portals to the Past: British Ceramics 1675-1825 and Contemporary British Studio Ceramics: The Grainer Collection. In the meantime, Mint Museum Randolph visitors will find on view:

Art of the Ancient Americas; Spanish Colonial Art; Threads of Identity: Contemporary Maya Textiles; The Transformed Self: Performance Masks of Mexico; Arts of Africa; Classically Inspired: European Ceramics Circa 1800; American Ceramics, 1825-1875; European Art; American Quilt Classics: The Bresler Collection; Ramesses the Great: Building Community; North Carolina Pottery, Then and Now; and our Heritage Gallery .
