We visited this large museum occupying over an acre of floor space in a series of buildings built from 1952 to 2010. We were fortunate it reopened for Covid conditions only last month and for now its free with a timed online ticket. After meeting with the masked entry docent, we self toured a succession of galleries to include a well rounded collection of world art, supplemented with galleries of glass, ceramics, a collection of 19th C Syrian treasures and two firearm collections. Most noteworthy was the Herman P. Dean Firearm Collection displaying the progression of firing mechanisms from wheel locks to flintlocks to cartridges with scores of excellent examples from Europe and America. A small tropical conservatory is attached featuring a Koi pond with a 352 piece glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. Outside a trail system through the surrounding 60 wooded acres make for a lengthy and eclectic visit. This a 1st class museum and well worth a 2 hour visit.

We arrived at the Museum today at 10:15. There was one car in the parking lot. We found that we had to have a ticket before entering (sign outside) so we called to find out how to do that. We explained to the woman who answered the phone that we were outside and she said the ticket was free we just had to go on the website to get it. Okay no problem but when we went on the website only Members were allowed in the morning. I called back to see if she could make an exception since we were in the parking lot and were just passing through and they didn’t seem to be overrun with visitors and she said “no”!! Bad customer service in our opinion.

Have never been to an art museum, but was tickled pink to be able to go with our kids, and grandkids while visiting in Huntington. Didn’t know what to expect, but was truly amazed with everything we saw. Because of the COVID there was no fee to get in, but we’re taking donations and We gave generously. A nice way to enjoy the afternoon and see some beautiful Art as well. The workers were very helpful and pleasant!

We stopped for a couple of hours on our way home from Huntington and were so glad we did. A great combination of paintings by both well-known and lesser known artists, regional glassware, metalwork from the Near East and more. Since it was the end of the day, there were very few patrons so we could take our time and talk about things we were especially drawn to without feeling like we were intruding on other viewers' space. Loved the mid-century feel of the building and the friendly and helpful staff. A great way to spend a gray winter afternoon, would love to return.

We never got inside! Zipped around the fairly short outdoor trails. Had a blast trying to find the stone sculptures and I enjoyed the sculptures which are outside the building. Was a nice place to spend the 90 minutes that we had.
