Bechtler Museum of Modern Art

420 S Tryon Street Charlotte NC 28202


The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art is dedicated to the celebration and analysis of the strongest aspects of mid- century modernism as reflected in the holdings of the Bechtler collection.

The collection comprises more than 1,400 works by 20th-century modern artists. Some works are accompanied by books, photographs and letters illustrating personal connections to the Bechtler family. With an impressive collection and nationally renowned exhibitions, the Bechtler Museum’s mission is to share the joy and excellence of the collection so everyone can be inspired, informed and have their cultural and intellectual life enhanced. From special members-only events, School Tours, Family Days, Classical Music, Film, Lectures and a commitment to making the museum accessible and inclusive to those with disabilities, the Bechtler is more than a museum – it is the cultural heart of Charlotte, North Carolina.
