We recently went to the Drop In and Create event while the Grandma Moses exhibit was there. My girls (ages 8 and 10) really enjoyed it. I love that the museum is in the middle of Big Spring Park. During the holiday season you can see Tinsel Trail or have a picnic and feed the ducks during the spring and... More

This is a lovely art museum. They get wonderful traveling exhibitions. They also have some great permanent collections. This museum holds the world's largest collection of Buccellati silver pieces with large animal sculptures made of fine silver. A nice coffee shop in the basement of the museum. The museum is on the land at Big Springs Park.

For a mid-size Southern city, Huntsville has a respectable art community. The Huntsville Museum of Art contains a core of quite respectable permanent exhibits. The temporary "on loan" exhibitions are very nice. This is well worth a visit for the out of town guest who thinks he/she has landed in a technology only kind of town.

This is a beautiful facility in a lovely park setting. Parking was readily available. Only the first floor had exhibits which made for a somewhat quick tour. The Red Clay Survey exhibit of contemporary Southern art was interesting and nicely done. The Stained Glass exhibit of local artists was small. The visit to the Ginny Ruffner Aesthetic Engineering exhibit made... More

Visited today with family, very impressive exhibit just opened today. Very large and gorgeous glass and metal works of art; visited two months ago and was surprised that the exhibit space was so small at that time. Now I realize that much of the exhibit space was closed then to set up for the new exhibit. Very much worth the... More

Both the permanent and traveling exhibitions are interesting and memorable. The building offers well laid out exhibits, large areas for receptions, a nice gift shop, water and park views and a nice restaurant with pretty views. Lots of community involvement helps bring some really good traveling exhibits and local residents have provided some beautiful works on loan.

I was very disappointed that 3 rooms were closed for the preparation of a new exhibit to open shortly after my visit. Even the items on display, I finished walking through in 45 minutes. The best part was the Al Hirschfeld exhibit, which is temporary. There was some interesting glasswork, but ultimately I could have skipped this place.

The art museum is situated downtown Huntsville at the edge of a lovely gently shaded park with a very large pond. There is good parking and a nice pizza restaurant adjacent. The museum had two special exhibits when I was there. One featured an extensive collection of paintings by Judy Fish and it was extraordinary! The walls were alive with... More
