Its a great place to enjoy and relax if you have the time to do so. Spend some time at this museum, its not very expensive and some of the arts are nice, great time with your significant other.

This old converted mansion is remarkable, the new glass addition is spectacular! Overlooking the Tennessee RIver and on a bluff, this is convienent to the Bluff View Art district (walking distance) Rembrant's coffee house and a variety of other restaurants. A unique venue and little area.

My husband an I payed this museum a visit while we were in Chattanooga. The museum consists of an old mansion linked to a newly build wing, overlooking the Tennessee river. The staff is very friendly. The collection is not very extensive (only a few paintings, bronzes and pieces of furniture of the older periods), but the new wing houses... More

We went all 3 floors and were overwhelmed with the amount of art. We were there when they were having a fund raiser of local art so interesting to see.

The visit is well worth it just for the views of the North Shore and River alone! A beautiful museum but a bit confusing to navigate. Two to Three hours needed if you don't just zip through the exhibits.

What a glorious place. Hunter Museum of American Art has done a wonderful job of blending the old Hunter Mansion with a very contemporary building. The mansion houses early American art that dates from the 1700's and up to the early 20th century. The rest of the museum offers several different types of American art from different time periods.

First, the positives. The mansion is impressive and the view of the river is beautiful. There is a limited amount of American art. The negatives: The entry fee of $10.00 is probably twice what it should be. There is too much contemporary art, which we do not appreciate. There were no temporary exhibits. If you do decide to go, there... More
