Went specifically for the Warhol & Halston display, they did a great job presenting using a variety of media. After living in Washington DC for over 30 years, I'd say we are pretty spoiled with an endless supply of Museums there. The Mint is small by comparison, but I do look forward to going back - maybe for once I will be able to take it all in instead of running though trying to make sure I didn't miss anything. Oh, and it's free for Military / Veterans - can't beat that.
The new Bechtler Museum is a great place for modern European art from the 20th Century. See and learn more about the Bechtler Museum and the "new" Cultural Campus in Uptown as well as over 75 sites on Charlotte's Longest-Running Daily City Tour presented by Queen City Tours and Travel!
I am not a real big history person. I have been more than one time and love it! There is so much history from then until now...so much to learn from the 1800's till now. A lot of their exhibits are interactive which makes it interesting too!
