Bechtler Museum of Modern Art

The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art is a powerful and imaginative setting for events and meetings. Located at the Levine Center for the Arts, within walking distance of the Charlotte Convention Center, the Bechtler is a unique space designed by internationally acclaimed architect Mario Botta. The Bechtler's lobby can comfortably accommodate up to 120 guests for a sit-down function and 180 for a standing reception. The lobby/plaza combination accommodates up to 375 for a standing reception. Events on the plaza take place under the museum’s cantilevered fourth-floor gallery which is suspended by a voluminous column.

Highly enjoyable museum. I thought the kinetic sculptures were fun to look at. Quick exhibits, there was the film room with the cool perspectives, super fascinating. Tickets are relatively cheap and worth the experience.

The front desk was so helpful and informative for our first visit! The museum itself is pretty small, but the current Warhol/Basquiat exhibit is what we came for and it was excellent. They also present a lot of art from styles and eras that most museums in North Carolina and the South in general dont, so that was cool. Cant beat it for the price!

Bechtler is a pretty small museum with an interesting European photograph exhibit. The staff was very nice and tickets were inexpensive. However, I wasn't really wowed by much of the artwork. I wish there were more interesting pieces. But it gave me something to do on a rainy day in CLT. I'd recommend visiting.

Closed on Tuesdays. $9 for adults. Smallish collection but great way to spend an hour or two. Heather was super knowledgeable.
