Activity Overview

The Mint Museum Randolph is located in the same building which once held the original branch of the United States Mint. It became North Carolina's first art museum when it was opened in 1936 and today hosts numerous exhibitions, cultural programs and events for the public to enjoy. Included in the facility are a reference library and a theatre.

  • There are also exhibits that will appeal to people with an interest in history drawn from their collection of art works from the Ancient Americas and the decorative arts, some objects in their collections date as far back as 2,000 B.C.

  • The grounds around the Randolph Mint Museum are beautiful and people often use them to jog, cycle or walk their dogs.
