Charlotte Things to Do - Top 10 for 2017 - #4 Visit Museums in Uptown Charlotte

*This is #4 in a series of our top 10 picks.  Visit our Facebook page - Things to Do in Charlotte for even more things to do in our area! 

 

Here are the first three in the series:

#1  Attend a Knights, Panthers or Hornets Game

#2  Ride the LYNX Blue Line

#3  Eat from a Truck

 

#4  Visit Museums in Uptown Charlotte

 

The Harvey Gantt Center, The Bechtler and Mint Museums are all popular museums to show your guests when you have visitors in town.  If you have children in-tow, you may want to visit Discovery Place; even if you don’t have children to occupy, it’s a wonderful place to let the bewilderment of your inner child out!  Another top Uptown museum is the Levine Museum of the New South.

 

Museums in Charlotte 

Charlotte has some of the Southeast’s top museums and you’re most definitely missing out if you haven’t checked them ALL out. These museums have also made it easy to enjoy even more fun - at night!  The Gantt After Dark series with a rooftop DJ is a highlight evening event you’ll want to catch.  You can enjoy jazz at the Bechtler, including drinks and some incredible modern art. On Wednesday nights the Mint is free and the exhibits change often - one trip to the Mint Museum is just not enough!

 

Check out this adorable video of one of Charlotte's favorites, Hugh McColl, giving children a tour of The Mint Museum...

Hi Debe many years ago in the early 1080's I had a traveling job and I went to Charlotte a few times. The people were so friendly and there was so much to do.

Hi Nina.  This is a great way to introduce someone to your city.  I admit that all I know of Charlotte somes from zipping though on I-85.  I can see I need to stop and explore!
