I love good sculpture and this place had some great stuff! The gallery itself was closed, but the sculpture garden was so good, we didn't even care. You just kind of walk around this beautiful outdoor gallery right on the edge of the river in the very beautiful Bluff View Art District. The sculpture garden is free and we were... More

Located in the Bluff View Art District of Chattanooga, River Gallery is where you can buy works of art done in a variety of mediums. Most prices are in the hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars, but there are also items for less than $100. Well worth visiting, but be aware it is a large building with many rooms, and the...

I have been to Chattanooga several times the past 2 years and always find time to spend time in this park. There is no cost. Park hours are limited . There are just a few benches for sitting. The sculptures are fantastic. After spending time at the museum or aquarium, this is a great place to find peace, quiet and... More

A lovely outdoor sculpture garden, my favorite item was the Soleri Bell Assembly by Paulo Soleri. It was a little warm when we went so be sure to bring some water to drink while walking. Wonderful area to visit.

Had to cancel much anticipated visit to the falls and look out mountain due to recent rains and boulders falling. Maybe a different season would make a better time for this

This place has nice artwork; however, the gallery has a pretentious atmosphere. The art view bluff district has a cool vibe to it, but once you enter the gallery and they tell you to leave your coffee at the door (even though it has a lid) you just have to wonder. I've been in high-end galleries around the country and... More

You may think of aquariums & choo-choo's when you think of Chattanooga, but once you visit this amazing hidden gem, you will think of Icarus when you visit the city

Very diverse collection of artworks by artists in many different media. If you visit the Bluff View area, don't miss the River Gallery! It is as good as many museums.

My husband and I enjoyed this store immensely! We wandered from room to room in a vintage building, which used to be apartments. The rooms were made cheerful by an abundance of natural light and tasteful arrangements & displays of the art. There was a variety of artwork & paintings, which I loved. I settled upon a HUGE praying mantis... More
