We drove 1 1/2 hours to Huntsville to catch the traveling Tsars' Cabinet: Two Hundred Years of Russian Decorative Arts Under the Romanovs (ends 1/3/16). There was a charge of $12 ( $10 for seniors) to enter the museum; I think this is just for special events, but you could not see anything without paying. The decorative art is grouped... More

Exhibits change somewhat regularly but are lackluster so I recently have resorted to buying a membership in Chattanooga's Hunter Museum and using it to get in here free even though I live here. Recently they chose to not allow us to get in with a reciprocal when they did have anice exhibit. Poor form.

Plan your visit. Check their website before you go so that you know what to expect. hsvmuseum.org The museum does a great job of changing their exhibits with a variety of traveling visits. Their web site details current and future exhibits. I would have liked to have seen more of the permanent collection. I don't know if they were in... More

The Huntsville Museum of Art is the ninth art museum I've visited this year. What made it unique to me was the collection of Gianmaria Buccellati silver animal sculptures given by Mrs Betty Grisham. What a treat to see them and to be able to walk around the cases to appreciate the intricacies of the work. I've never seen anything... More

What a great experience, such an asset to the Community. The personnel involved are very engaged with the patrons, and the patrons are very involved with the working personnel. The food was amazing, the beverage service was attentive but not overarching. I have extensive experience with the standard "rubber chicken" conferencing/banquet hall scenario, and I can tell you, without reservation,... More

Very nice exhibits on the first two years of WWI and the Romanovs. The museum includes a good exhibit for children on art; style, methods of painting, types of medium, etc.

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.
