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!

There is an interesting botanical room, with a Chihuly glass sculpture. Good changing exhibits and very interesting shop. There is also a cool hiking trail with a trailhead at the parking lot. It is a short hike through the forest.

during a recent 2 day road trip, my wife and I found this fantastic little art museum. It is very nicely laid out, has some very good collections and is in a beautiful rural setting. Definitely worth a side trip.

We were in town for another special event and included a trip to the Huntington Museum of Art while visiting the city. Who says you can't take small children to an art museum? This was the first exposure to the world of fine art for my great-grand-niece and nephew and they loved it! We especially enjoyed the conservatory area and... More

The conservatory was awesome. The variety of orchids was intense. There were several permanent exhibits and a few that change, so there is always something new. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
