  • Very nice museum with lots of galleries for a city the size of Huntsville. Nothing pre-1800s in the collection though. Lots of changing and touring exhibits. Nice history section for kids. Beautiful collection of Italian silver animals. Pretty location. Classes, gift shop, restaurant attached.
  • The opening lecture of the Connections show included talks by two of the three artists, as well as a small reception. It was pleasant and intellectually stimulating but I don't think I'd buy one of the skateboard art pieces or washing machine ones.
  • The Galleries are beautiful. I recommend that you should visit
  • This art museum is always filled with unique and interesting things. They also have some great kids activities on the weekends. It's within walking distance to pretty much everything in Downtown Huntsville. Also some great views.
  • Not huge but great collection and fun stuff for kids
