After visiting for years, this year we decided to actually join the museum. They usually have an excellent variety of art and exhibits always change. Well worth visiting. The Huntsville Museum of Art Academy brings in wonderful instructors for those wishing to grow in their artistic skills.

We love Art museums and visit when we travel. We are members of the Huntsville Museum of Art and try to make it to most exhibits. It is a small museum with a small gift shop and restaurant. The nice thing is you can spend an hour or two and have a nice time and see everything and not feel... More

The visit was lovely, calm and soothing. There was a kids room that my 9 & 10 year old boys enjoyed, especially the interactive games and kaleidoscopes. There were computers that you can make pictures of modern art. There was a local artist exhibit and art from John James Audubon. Tickets were reasonable, $8 for seniors and $5 for children.

Close to our hotel and grounds add to the beauty. Bring quarters to feed the fish and ducks. Closed on Monday so plan accordingly. Need a few hours. Walk to downtown was a little long but weather made it pleasant.

It has been a long time since I have visited a museum and loved every exhibit! The old Dutch Masters exhibit was phenomenal! The Portrait of Madame Adélaïde was definitely my favorite painting. John James Audubon's Quadrupeds exhibit, Encounters:Dori DeCamillis, the glass and silver exhibits were all fantastic. The museum has done a nice job getting together a nice variety... More

Maybe I was expecting too much after enjoying the Louvre in Paris and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia, among other museums. This was billed as a Rubens and Gainsborough exhibition. There was one of one artist and two of another. :o(

The HMA is a state of the art modern facility definitely worth visiting. We came to see their Rembrandt, Reubens Golden Age of Europe exhibit and were pleasantly surprised to find how many pieces were in the collection in addition to its diverse number of artists. Hello, we saw a real Rembrandt! While this exhibit seems to be the focal... More

The museum is small, but oh the gems on display! We were fortunate enough to visit when the Grandma Moses exhibit and the Betty Grishman Collection of Buccellati Silver Animals were on display. All beautifully displayed and expertly lit so you could see every detail. One floor for the museum; the basement/lower level contains classrooms and a bar/restaurant (see separate... More

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.
