I visited on a Thursday night and the admission was $5.00. Oh sure, this isn't a huge museum but it has some lovely collections. I really enjoyed the stunningly beautiful silver animals. The Janet Fish exhibit was lovely and the Hirschfield sketches were fantastic. Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed the collection of glass art. If you are looking for a quiet place to spend an hour or two admiring things that are pretty, this is the place.

This art museum had such an eclectic collection from Romanticism to the world's largest sterling silver sculptures of various animals to blown glass art collections, photography from locals & a youth art exhibit displaying from all ages in school. It was really great- especially the walk through time with the different expressionist known through history. I was very pleased I... More

Good medium sized art museum, focusing on local and modern art, with a nice retrospective of the history of art. I especially liked the glass art, and the wonderful silver animals! Wish there was a little food court, or refreshment area. Also, several areas are not open, and an expansion would be great.

I had to go to this museum as part of an assignment for an art history class. I have been to museums all over the country, but this one was a real letdown. Luckily, the day we went was a free day, otherwise, I would have been really upset. One entire section of the museum was closed to the public.... More

A short walk from where we ate lunch, we popped into the museum for an hour or so. At $10 per adult I found it a bit pricey for such a small collection but we were discounted for being military and we enjoyed some items unique to this museum so ultimately we left satisfied. I forget the names of the... More

Very nice for the size, very reasonably priced, free parking and a lovely cafe downstairs. Too heavy on glass art and they get "side B" touring exhibits, but a great place to take visitors or spend an afternoon.

I travel to Huntsville often. I always check the current exhibit(s). This museum is well located downtown. The permanent collection is very small, but there is often a traveling exhibit that is worthwhile for being interesting and unusual. Parking is free. Entrance fee is very reasonable, especially for students and seniors.

A collection of 128 photo's taken during "The Big One". Many very famous , others I had not seen before. All tell a spectacular story of WW2 as only a B & W photo of that era can do so well. This was a traveling exhibit and it has moved on, but the museum always has something great to show... More
