Huntington Museum of Art reviews
What better way to spend time indoors on a rainy day? It’s not a large museum but worth a visit especially since it’s only $5 per person. There are some interesting pieces plus a weapons collection...

We visited this large museum occupying over an acre of floor space in a series of buildings built from 1952 to 2010. We were fortunate it reopened for Covid conditions only last month and for now...

I love going here it brings back lots of memories visiting as a young kid. I really like the plants, they have exotic plants I never seen before and even a chocolate tree. Museum is free on Tuesday.
This is a beautiful museum. Well thought out and delightful to walk through. We thoroughly enjoyed our time start to finish. A beautiful collection of art and sculptures. The conservatory was amazing. We will definitely return.
