The Mint Museum is dedicated to collecting and exhibiting works of art and design from across the globe, to promote understanding of diverse peoples and cultures. The Mint Museum consists of two facilities: The Mint Museum Randolph and The Mint Museum Uptown.
The Randolph location of the Mint Museum is housed in what was the original branch of the United States Mint.
Mint Museum Uptown houses American Art, from the colonial era to the present; the Craft + Design Collection, and Modern & Contemporary collections. The remaining collections are held at Randolph, including more than 2500 works of art of the Ancient Americas, ceramics and decorative arts, and European and African art.
Both locations also host temporary special exhibitions.
