  • Incredible experience. The museum is housed across 3 buildings, built in different decades to showcase 3 decades of architecture. In a way, the buildings themselves are an art piece. Not only does the museum have some beautiful art, but there are also participatory portions throughout encouraging you to engage with and process the art. Overall, would highly recommend a visit here.
  • The Hunter Museum offers a wonderful collection of American art while also providing contemplation on contemporary issues. It is a wonderful place to visit for the entire family - whether it is for a special event or any typical day. Thank you for all that you do for Chattanooga!
