My wife and I walked through this gallery while walking along the riverfront during a recent trip to Chattanooga. This gallery is an old house and is huge. It is located in the Bluff View Art District of Chattanooga. They have art from all over the country and they also have a few collections from local artists. There is every... More

Forget high-priced museums. This little nook was such a dream. Nice way to escape from the midday sun and see some amazing work.

This gallery is a must-see. I have been visiting it for years, and it always has a wide variety of high-quality art pieces, paintings, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, fabric, and more in a range of prices. The staff are friendly and helpful and treat you like royalty no matter what you spend. The Bluff View Art District itself is worth a... More

The River Gallery offers a varied selection of art created by local artists. Paintings, oil. acrylic, watercolor, etc. are available for purchase as well as art pottery, sculptures and jewelry. If you go to Rembrandt's next door for coffee be sure and finish before you enter the gallery, they can be a bit snippy about it.

This zoo gets better every time we visit. What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality. It is run by people that care and it shows! The animals are well cared for and the enclosures nicely done. Make sure you bring your camera as there are lots of great photo opportunities.

This is a wonderful place to see artistic things from glass blown ornaments, wind chimes, jewelry as well as more traditional artwork. And the staff is warm, friendly and welcoming!

the art in the garden was very unique (extremely odd) but it was a nice place to visit especially for someone who is into art.

This is a beautiful little garden in a very idyllic space on the bluff over the water. One of those places that is better for just happening upon. I wouldn't think I'd be interested in a sculpture garden but these were good, interesting...sculptures that you would actually sit with for a minute and be curious about. I also liked it's... More
