This is a great find. Well lit, well maintained, open viewing areas and a diverse collection of art. They have something for all ages. They even have artwork outside around the grounds.

Just took my granddaughter to the children's section after feeding geese, and she showed me "her" section of the museum! We did puzzles, stamping, coloring, and more! I think I had more fun than she did!!!! We had a great time!

My wife and I have come to love this museum because it has some of our favorite artists like John Singer Sargent, Edward Hopper, etc., as well as a fine restaurant. The Saturday brunch was delicious and relatively inexpensive(about $20, for the two of us.) There is no admission fee to the museum. After brunch we made a leisurely stroll... More

Great art museum for a town this size. Was surprised by the quality and variety they have. Rotating exhibits make this worth repeated visits, as due occasional guest speakers. And the price is right with free admission!

The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts is in the same park as the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. It has an outstanding permanent collection and features a traveling or special exhibit or two. The permanent collection offers different art styles and periods. It also includes decorative art pieces. We always enjoy strolling the spacious galleries and the beautiful surrounding park.

A spacious archtecturally interesting structure located by a lake. The collection is not extensive but has some significant paintings that are worth a visit. Small cafe and gift shop and a children's activity center. Very pleasant and serene experience.

My kids and I love the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. We spend many weekends here just admiring the paintings and sculptures. The outside is also nice, as there is an area where you can feed very large catfish, and very frisky ducks!

We enjoyed an afternoon trip to this museum with our grandkids, ages 3 and 4. The kids area is very hands on and interactive. I would encourage anyone with bored kids to take this in.
