We're a smallish city - maybe around 55,000 and I'm always kind of stunned when I visit this museum. Their collections are fabulous I think and quite diverse. They have a... read more

We're a smallish city - maybe around 55,000 and I'm always kind of stunned when I visit this museum. Their collections are fabulous I think and quite diverse. They have a beautiful small room full of antique sterling silver pieces, a room of guns and other weapons (which I have to admit I've never viewed but it's there), a quite... More

My fiance and I went there and the staff was courteous and the area was well maintained. However, there was a few areas that were blocked off and couldn't be viewed. However, the plant area is the highlight of the whole museum in my opinion.

Visited this morning, very nice staff and facility. However, there was relatively little to see, as they are in process of changing out a bunch off exhibits. As a result, I was not charged admission (but did leave a donation). Wait a while until you visit.

We expected a below average experience, and were blown away by the size of the museum and the care that had gone into curating the exhibits. We especially liked the consrvatory which features a glass sculpture by Dale Chihouly, who is one of our favorites. The day we were there, there was an extensive exhibit of photographs by Ansel Adams,... More

I have been to Huntington several times but this is my first place here. I did not expect such nice facilities and broad spectrum of exhibitions. I really enjoyed my visit and I plan to come here again for a more through visit. They have transient contemporary art exhibitions, photography shows and a permanent Islamic display (with a beautiful decorated... More

It's hard to find. People not friendly and once again not even remotely close to the University. They have a nice facility and some good displays.

Didn't expect too much (were we visiting West Va), but it was classier than we expected. Good exhibits. Nice use of our vacation time on a rainy day.

A wonderful, well laid out small museum. It has a strong permanent collection with paintings, drawings and etchings from American artists Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, Edward Shin and more. The museum and wall notes are thoughtfully laid out. It also has a lovely conservatory with a Chiluly centerpiece. Tuesdays are free. If you are driving through Huntington, WV take a... More

Art is cool and everything, but have you seen the plant conservatory? THERE IS CHOCOLATE IN THERE! It's definitely a cool place to see tropical plants in the middle of WV. The trail is also awesome. I used to run there every day when I lived in Huntington and it's a nice break from the crowded Ritter trail. Worth it!
