The Mint Museum


The Mint Museum The Mint Museum has long held an anchor position in the art community in our region. From its original home on Randolph Road to its first uptown location, the Mint has endured several changes but none as big as the grand opening of the brand new uptown building. The museum aims to be a world class destination for art and craft lovers and it is the third corner of the triumvirate of art repositories along with the Bechtler Museum and Gantt Center. We visited the new building and got a look at what's inside. We share that experience and more about the Mint.
