Our family loves this museum! Just recently, MMFA hosted a traveling exhibition of three dimensional art using found objects. It was fascinating! Good permanent collection as well. Of course, our children love the children's interactive wing most of all.

Great art museum--free admission! Nice children's area. In the middle of Shakespeare park. Nice variety of art and culture. Next to lake with ducks and geese... very aesthetically pleasing indoors and out

I have loved coming here since my childhood and to this day still adore this place! The kids museum is just as fun as ever. The teenagers also enjoyed the kids part and seeing the huge paintings in the big adjoining room. I spend hours in here. Something very peaceful. Has a great view of the pond, and the waterfowl...

I've been in many of the most famous museums in the world. While this museum is certainly not on that list, it's much bigger and better than someone would expect to find in Montgomery, AL. The artwork is impressive and diverse. The collection of American art is my favorite. They have a very large storage area and rotate different pieces... More

You wil rarely see a Museum of Fine Arts which is so beautifully located. Can see the place in an hour, without rushing. A very good permanent collection and, judging from the temporary one, this museum really works hard to bring great art. Free admission is a bonus (and the Gift Shop is a nice way to "give back")

The kids loved the hands on part of the museum which kept them entertained for over an hour. Other parts of the museum have interesting art that will interest a variety of children.

They have a pretty good collection - not large, maybe 100 pieces, most of them paintings. But what they have is quite good. The paintings are mostly American, from 1840 thru modern times, but with little modern art. They have one of the best Thomas Hart Benton’s I’ve ever seen, a great Marsden Hartley, a Peacable Kingdom and quite a... More

We really enjoyed this Museum - the exhibition by the Colombian artist was fab and made the whole visit fun - the rest of the exhibits too we both enjoyed - I did not know much about American artists but have learned a lot.
