A lovely little art museum. The exhibits change just frequently enough. Great display space. Love it.

“Incredible Art in a Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

I took my daughter (11), her friend and great-grandma to the HMOA today. What a great time we all had! First, MILITARY GET IN FREE this summer until Labor Day! :) There were 4+ exhibits, and all were comprised of various mediums, subjects and a wide range of artists. There was an educational exhibit on the history of art, and then an interactive children's art room which was cool! Be sure to go through the "orientation room" and then to the left or you'll miss a bunch. Staff was friendly, not snobby. And afterwards there is the large park, pond, ducks and a fabulous little pizzeria (Pane e Vino) tucked beside it. Lovely afternoon

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

This is a smaller museum of art, so of course, it would be unreasonable to expect a huge array of famous artists being displayed. My issue was more with the personnel. My friend and I were basically stalked by a security person throughout our visit. We are both professional working women and were dressed in business attire. We are not shady looking characters, so it was a bit strange to be followed like we were. It made for an awkward viewing experience, and I have not returned. I will say that the art that I saw that day was local and interesting.

“Stimulating and Beautiful sitting on Big Spring Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

The Huntsville Museum of Art sits along the shore of Big Spring Park and houses over 2,500 wonderful pieces of art in the permanent collection, plus offers seasonal rotating exhibits each year. The facilities are lovely, the setting gorgeous. Whether visiting our area or a full time resident, The Huntsville Museum of Art has something for everyone. Eat in the lower level restaurant Pane Vino for a real treat after your tour.

You don't expect a gallery of this quality in a town this size... but here it is... enjoy!!! Varying exhibits throughout the year... all well presented and world class.
