Very cool place. Specific to American art, with very knowledgeable curators. Enjoyed this spot a lot!
We had the pleasure of attending a small wedding reception at the museum and it was a lovely, special setting. It was after-hours so we couldn't visit the entire space however the catering team was super and the surroundings memorable.
One could argue about the aesthetic and artistic value of the museum which combines multiple old and new building styles, but it is definitely worth a visit.

I was delightfully surprised by the excellent quality of the art in this gem of a museum which is comprised of both a stunning modern wing and an historic mansion. Well worth a visit.
We really enjoyed our visit to Hunter. The museum is in the wonderful art district of Chattanooga up on a hill and overlooks the River. Right outside are fantastic, jaw dropping art sculptures and exhibits.
