From the historic mansion in the Bluff View Art district to the stunning contemporary additions, the Hunter is worth the climb up the hill. The focus is a nice selection of American art including the Hudson River school. They are surrounded by wonderful outdoor sculptures as well. There are at least three charming restaurants within a block as well as galleries and a working artists studio, which was not open when I was there. The Walnut street bridge (a pedestrian bridge) across the Tennessee River is right there as well as the Houston museum, in the private residence of a woman who amassed an amazing glass collection (including over 8,000 glass pitchers alone). And all just a few blocks away from the river, the aquarium and a main restaurant and theatre district.
