The Mint Museum~ Charlotte, NC

Last week I went to visit my son Sean. He lives in North Carolina near Charlotte. One of the highlights of my trip was a visit to the Mint Museum located in the city of Charlotte. There are two Mint Museums in Charlotte. We went to the Mint Museum Uptown, which opened in October of last year.
The Mint Museum Uptown houses the Mint Museum of Craft + Design, as well as collections of American, contemporary, and European art. The museum is housed in a beautiful contemporary building. We had a great time exploring the different exhibits. They have quite an eclectic collection of art. It's not a large museum, by New York standards anyway.  If you find yourself in the Charlotte area, visit the museum. It's worth the trip!
