The Hunter offers amazing architecture, a stunning permanent collection and exciting temporary exhibitions, a museum store and café by Dipped Fresh. The Hunter Museum focuses on American art from the Colonial period to the present day. The variety of the collection inside is reflected by the architecture of the museum's exterior. The museum is housed in an early twentieth century mansion, a modern 1970s era building and a sleek, contemporary structure of steel and glass. The museum's collection includes paintings, works on paper, sculpture, photography, mixed media, video, furniture and contemporary studio glass covering a diverse range of styles and periods. A few of the well-known artists whose work is represented in the Hunter include Thomas Cole, Fitz Henry Lane, Winslow Homer, Robert S. Duncanson, Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, John Marin, Thomas Hart Benton, Helen Frankenthaler, Louise Nevelson, Jack Beal, George Segal, Duane Hanson, Robert Rauschenberg, Sam Gilliam, and Andy Warhol. The Hunter Museum is a 501 (C) 3 Non-Profit charitable institution.

We went through slowly and it took a couple of hours. I enjoyed learning about Chattanooga's history which was not expected but a nice surprise. The art was good, some even entertaining. It is free on the first Sunday of the month which is a...More

If you enjoyvart then I would recommend. They are a little pricey for me. I wish they had more parties or benefits to go to.

The museum is broken into multiple rooms that are categorized by time period. There are also some local pieces depicting different areas in and around Chattanooga. It was a good activity for the rainy afternoon.

The Hunter Art Museum is the main focal point of the Chattanooga art district. The museum itself is worth a visit, but, if time doesn't permit, visit the area to see beautiful views of the TN River and outdoor art sculptures.

Went to the Monet and American Impressionism exhibition in August. The museum is a treasure and well maintained, easy to navigate. There is so much about it on the internet I can only repeat...Just go and enjoy.

Although we didn't go into the museum building, we really enjoyed the public art as we walked around this area. Art in public spaces makes it accessible to everyone which is the way art should be.

Lots of art available outside on the premises as well as inside. You can walk many paths throughout the property and see art exhibits along the way. One highlight is walking across the glass bridge which crosses the interstate.
