This place was a great way to spend an afternoon. There were all different kinds of art, and my favorite, a large exhibit of antique furniture. The exhibits do change out, so you can go more than once. The view of the river from outside is gorgeous!
The mansion part of the museum had some very interesting pieces on display. I feel some of them were there just because they were pieces that predated the 1900's, no real artistic qualities. The contemporary part of the museum had some interesting pieces, especially the blown glass exhibit. I was disappointed that the only real big name in the art... 更多
My husband and I recently visited the Hunter Museum of American Art and had a very pleasant afternoon. We enjoyed seeing the mansion that is the original portion of the museum. We were fortunate to see an exhibition of Eudora Welty photographs on display until July. I thought the interactive features of the museum were nice - there was a... 更多
The Hunter museum has a nice permanent collection but I recently visited to see the Gajin Fujita collection. It was a nice tour and the mansion attached has a diverse collection as well. The walk on the bridge along side of the museum is a great finish due to it's view.
Chattanooga has a crown jewel in the Hunter Museum. The setting overlooking the Tennessee River and walking distance from the downtown hotels makes it a must see when coming to Chattanooga. The community support has made this a unique museum of art. My daughter and her husband decided to host their wedding there and it was simply amazing.
this museum had some nice art. You go into the attached mansion. Would have like it more if the mansion was a tour of life in it and not just used as wall space for the art.
We had never visited the Hunter Museum of Art before so we decided to go. We were not disappointed. The permanent collection was really good and offers some truly unique pieces. There were two visiting exhibits while we were there. One was photography from the 1920-1930's and the other a LA graffiti artist. Admission was only $9.95 for adults.
I had always missed seeing the Bluff View Art District of Chattanooga, and I must say this museum was a gem, sitting on an 80 ft. high bluff. I spent hours there, and the views of the city from the back of the 1904 classical revival mansion are fantastic. I was most impressed by a small exhibit in an alcove... 更多
Visited this lovely museum to see the special Eudora Welty photography exhibit. The special exhibit was wonderful and we were most impressed by their permanent collection ranging from a Grandma Moses to American impressionists. Galleries are well lit and laid out and there is seating in many galleries to sit and take in the talent and beauty of the paintings.... 更多
This was not originally on our plans for the week but with a day of heavy rains and nothing else to do we decided to check it out and were very pleasantly surprised. The range of art types and mediums was amazing. There was something for everyone.
The views of the Tennessee River and Island are just lovely from this location. The Hunter is in the Art District which is an area not to be missed. The museum itself is well laid out, there are functions, classes and changing exhibits, so the museum can be visited on more than one occasion. The first Sunday of each month... 更多
The Hunter Art Museum is located in the Bluff View Art District of Chattanooga immediately adjacent to the Walnut Street Walking Bridge. The Museum has an old section which was once a southern mansion that sits ontop of the bluff with an incredible view of the Tennessee River. There is also a new section built around the old southern mansion... 更多
The museum building alone worth the visit. Located in a cliff over Tennessee river the museum has stunning architecture, inside another good surprises with collections very well displayed. Not crowded in a Saturday afternoon
