A short walk from where we ate lunch, we popped into the museum for an hour or so. At $10 per adult I found it a bit pricey for such a small collection but we were discounted for being military and we enjoyed some items unique to this museum so ultimately we left satisfied. I forget the names of the artists but there are plenty of paintings, sketches and photographs for anyone for find something they enjoy. There was a large traveling collection of hybrid photo paintings that I didn't care for but are apparently popular. Speaking of popular, this museum doesn't appear to be, there was only one other couple there besides us; the staff outnumbered the patrons. Anyway, there is an area with a little art history that I enjoyed and an area with hands on activities for children where I stopped to rest my back on one of the three beanbags available. I'm glad we didn't bring our kids though, they would not have heeded the "do not touch" signs and we'd have likely left with an enormous bill when we toured the glass artwork area. The glass stuff was impressive but not my favorite. I loved the silver art. I think it was predominantly sculptures of animals but I was so thoroughly impressed by the details that I'm now a fan and plan to do a little on-line research. I'm an uneducated oaf and would prefer my walls adorned with sketches of landmarks from street artists than oil paintings from a "master" but I still found myself entertained and recommend spending a rainy Saturday at the Huntsville Museum of Art. If it's not raining, hit the lovely park right out back when you are done.
