The museum is small and well-designed. The permanent and temporary collections were high quality. My favorites were the Italian sculpture made of sterling silver and a sampling from Barry Goldwater's photography collection. Admission was $10 for adults when I visited; for me, it was a worthwhile value. The entrance is on Church Street not the side street entrance that appears... More

Not very large. Less than an hour to see it all. A couple interesting exhibits. Nice collection of silver.

This was a lovely experience. The museum had some folk art exhibits and also fashion. The real draw was the intricate silver work and collection of father and son paintings.We enjoyed the museum in the morning and lunched at the attached restaurant outside for lunch, overlooking the park. It was a pre mother's day experience and one that was very... More

We drove 1 1/2 hours to Huntsville to catch the traveling Tsars' Cabinet: Two Hundred Years of Russian Decorative Arts Under the Romanovs (ends 1/3/16). There was a charge of $12 ( $10 for seniors) to enter the museum; I think this is just for special events, but you could not see anything without paying. The decorative art is grouped... More

Exhibits change somewhat regularly but are lackluster so I recently have resorted to buying a membership in Chattanooga's Hunter Museum and using it to get in here free even though I live here. Recently they chose to not allow us to get in with a reciprocal when they did have anice exhibit. Poor form.

Plan your visit. Check their website before you go so that you know what to expect. hsvmuseum.org The museum does a great job of changing their exhibits with a variety of traveling visits. Their web site details current and future exhibits. I would have liked to have seen more of the permanent collection. I don't know if they were in... More

The Huntsville Museum of Art is the ninth art museum I've visited this year. What made it unique to me was the collection of Gianmaria Buccellati silver animal sculptures given by Mrs Betty Grisham. What a treat to see them and to be able to walk around the cases to appreciate the intricacies of the work. I've never seen anything... More

What a great experience, such an asset to the Community. The personnel involved are very engaged with the patrons, and the patrons are very involved with the working personnel. The food was amazing, the beverage service was attentive but not overarching. I have extensive experience with the standard "rubber chicken" conferencing/banquet hall scenario, and I can tell you, without reservation,... More

Very nice exhibits on the first two years of WWI and the Romanovs. The museum includes a good exhibit for children on art; style, methods of painting, types of medium, etc.
