  • Recently went here to see a children's exhibit and was impressed by the building and the show. They charge for special exhibits but other parts of the place are free. Very clean and nice setting for a...  more »
  • The museum is Ok but pretty small. You can finish it in 30 minutes. Don't worth the tickets. I rather recommend the childrens museum if you go with small children.  more »
  • Huntsville Museum of Art: the permanent collection is skippable. Temporary exhibits are hit and miss. It’s quite pricey ($10) for a small regional museum. 2/5.  more »

  • Great for what it is. There was a great exhibit in world War 2 propaganda/bond posters when I went through. Also a great kids area for young kids to have fun
  • A bastion of culture in the heart of Huntsville. I admit I don't utilize this municipal treasure as much as I should - I've attended several events here but seldom go as a museum visitor. The building itself is art and the staff is alway earnest and studious in helping the average person feel at home.
  • The Huntsville Museum of Art is charming but a bit small. With the expanding local art community, the focus has turned to modern, Southeastern artists, many of which are worth keeping an eye on! Recent additions include an interactive children's gallery and the Davidson Center. Some past exhibits have included big names, such as Maxfield Parrish, Norman Rockwell, and Ansel Adams. I remember a few others dedicated to cinema fashion and anime! I grew up taking classes at the Museum Academy under the tutelage of talented local artists, such as S. Renee Prasil (see her studio at Lowe Mill!) A friend of ours curated a collection of Tiffany stained glass windows. The gift shop has unique offerings, many of which are relevant to the current shows. You never know what will come through the HMoA!
  • Great exhibits (with a good rate of refresh), but small. The building is huge, but it just seems a little underwhelming once you get in. Excellent mix of media on display.
  • The Huntsville Museum of Art has some really unique exhibits that have no real analogue elsewhere. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area and have spare time. Student admission is $5 (their website is wrong) and is a great deal.
