The Mint Museum has announced that starting May 1, children in grades K-12 will enjoy complimentary admission to both museum locations for an entire year when accompanied by a paying adult. Additionally, college students enrolled in visual and performing arts programs will also receive free access during this period.

According to WCCB, this unprecedented opportunity for students is made possible through the generous support of Mint Board of Trustees Member Charlotte Wickham. Wickham, in partnership with Charlotte Ballet Dancer Humberto Ramazzina, spearheaded efforts that raised over $425,000 during the Charlotte Ballet’s 2024 Dancing with the Stars Gala on March 2.
