    It is a very small museum with great pieces. The 4th floor is the golden ticket here. Was able to get discount on tickets through groupon. Gift shop is full of stuff you'd want to take home!

    Have someone give you a guided tour - it is a fantastic way to get to know the museum. And, in case you are wondering, Patterson Pope supplied the movable shelving and art rack in the storage room.

    At the gift shop, we've found an ink pen disguised as a tube of paint. Folks may also browse books on art, prints of museum works, T-shirts of the "Firebird" and other cool stuff. Read more

    Although it isn't crammed with cocktail tables, the Bechtler lobby does sport a bar, some club seating and surprisingly fine acoustics. Read more

    The architecture is cool but it is a very small museum, you can't even compare to Mint. Still, it is nice to walk around and see the art.

    This new exhibition focuses on letters, prints and found objects related to renowned kinetic artist Jean Tinguely’s Cascade sculpture in uptown Charlotte’s Carillon building. Very interesting exhibit. Read more

    A new museum featuring the Bechtler family's private collection. Works by artists such as Giacometti and Miro are on public display for the first time.

    Great Modern collection, and worth a trip for the photo op with Niki De Saint Phalle's mirrored "Phoenix" sculpture out front!

    The special exhibitions are a nice way of seeing the 'hidden' parts of the museum's extensive collection.

    City-contributed funds to build this facility were raised through an increase on the rental-car tax, supported by the hospitality industry, would be a key source for the city’s contribution. Read more

    Come hear some great jazz on the first friday of each month. Get there early or buy your tickets online the day before or you might miss out.

    If you pay for admission here, you get a discount at the Mint Museum Uptown across the street.

    If you can get for free or just feel like donating to the arts, check it out. Otherwise, it's not worth the admission.

    When on the 4th floor, ask the security person to turn on the motorized Tinguely pieces. Pretty cool, especially the Santana piece.
