The museum is dedicated to mid-20th Century modern art. It is not a large museum, but has excellent works. There are well-known artists (Picasso, Max Ernst, Joan Miro), mixed in with other superb painters that are not as well-known. The third floor is a rotating...More

Nice modern art museum with some great finds in Downtown Charlotte. Some of the outdoor sculptures were fun, but it was hot outside in August. We totally enjoyed our 1.5 hours at this little gem. Families would enjoy seeing it as well.

Amazingly Beautiful building, but I could pass on the art. Too many photograph collections. Need to focus on the MODERN ART.

It was a pretty good museum. Not very large at all. The Picasso's were impressive. I'm not a huge fan of modern art, however I found pieces that did interest me. I think that going to an event here would be good. On its own...More

Very disappointing. I went to this museum when it first opened and it had a nice collection including Andy Warhol paintings. This was a huge disappointment. Very few modern art paintings. Many solo photograph collections that were dark and boring. Lots of kids running around...More

This is a beautiful, but modest, museum. The space is open and airy. The art is really impressive, too. This is well worth visiting if you are looking for art or quiet.
