The basics

Designed by noted Swiss architect Mario Botta, the 4-story building features a terracotta exterior and a soaring glass atrium. Start at the stunning and cantilevered 4th-floor gallery, and work your way down. There’s a strong European focus to the collection, including European Perspective and the School of Paris, which covers a broad range of media, such as drawings, paintings, sculptures, and tapestries. The museum also hosts special events, lectures, and other programs throughout the year.

Join a docent-led tour to learn more about the collection and the Bechtler family. A number of Charlotte sightseeing tours, including by bike and Segway, pass by the museum.
