I can't say enough positive things about the museum. They have a truly diverse selection and it's a wonderful place to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon. I recommend the tour for your first visit, just to give you the background and information about the different collections. My favorite part is that they offer things for children from preschool and up. They offer art and craft classes on Tues. and Thurs. and the cost is nominal. What a great way to introduce Art to your family! My now 4 year old loves to visit the Museum!

I was required to visit the Hunter Museum while a student in Chattanooga. This was a very learning experience for me. It was my first visit to a Art museum and I really enjoyed it. There were several famous painting inside and a beautiful interior. However the sculptures in the outer gardens were my favorite. There were some really unique pieces. Not too pricy esp for local students.

What a great way to spend an afternoon. The docents have weekly training as well as a 6 week training course before conducting tours for groups. You will have someone knowledgeable about the arts, which is nice. The Hunter has also expanded and just completed the O'Keeffe exhibit. There is a bridge connecting the Hunter with the walking bridge and parking on high street. There is a great little cafe in there as well.

My friend volunteers as a docent and loves it there.

Located in beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee, this museum is a very much undiscovered place. They offer many art on exhibit and is very entertaining for adults and children alike. They even offer summer programs for children to take part in.

Now the the renovations and addition to the Hunter Museum have been completed, it's the perfect time to check this museum out. They now have more space and more artwork on display. The addition of the coffehouse is also a nice touch. Don't forget to check out the "old" part of the museum as well, as they have new works on display there was well. A lot has been taken out of the vaults now that they have more room.

When we planned our trip to this museum, I was expected a ho-hum trip and maybe to find it a 'little' enjoyable. Boy, was I wrong. I had no idea I had such a passion for art before visiting this place. There were so many varieties of mediums, watercolor painting, oil paintings, clay forms, carvings, recycling art, and many other unique art forms that I'd never seen before. Even the abstract art was very interesting to view & seeing one artist's style in contrast to another artist was very powerful.

Our trip definitely stirred an art interest in myself, my daughter & husband, which really surprised me. Since then I've had a renewed interest in pencil sketching, and painting, as has my daughter & husband.

We were also pleased to see a children's area in the museum where children have different manipulatives & lots of fun activities. My daughter didn't want to leave at this point of the trip especially.

Before we left, we found out that the museum has many day camps & summer camps for budding young artists who want to expand their horizons. THe museum also had a few cafeteria areas to eat in & their food was pretty good. I can definitely recommend this as a great family field trip!
