Mission Statement:

The Huntsville Museum of Art is a non-profit municipal corporation established by the City of Huntsville, Alabama, and governed by a city-appointed Museum Board.  The Museum seeks to foster understanding of the visual arts and appreciation of artistic achievement.  The mission of the Museum is to bring people and art together through acquiring, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting the highest quality works of art.

About Us:

The Huntsville Museum of Art, North Alabama’s leading visual arts center, moved to its beautiful facility in Big Spring International Park in March 1998. The nationally-accredited Museum fills its thirteen galleries with a variety of exhibitions throughout the year, including prestigious traveling exhibits and the work of nationally and regionally acclaimed artists.

The Museum’s own permanent collection is comprised of over 3,000 objects and also forms the basis for several exhibitions each year. In addition, the Museum offers reception areas on the gallery level and in the Great Hall for weddings, meetings and other events. Visitors can also shop for local art in SPACE 300, Art for Today’s Collector.

Named as one of the state’s “Top 10” destinations by the Alabama Bureau of Tourism and Travel, the Huntsville Museum of Art is gaining a reputation throughout the South for bringing high-caliber touring exhibitions to the region. Nearly 40,000 people visited the Museum during A Taste for Splendor: Russian Imperial and European Treasures from the Hillwood Museum. Another 23,000 visited the blockbuster exhibition Land of the Winged Horsemen: Art in Poland.

In addition to its exhibitions, the Museum offers art classes for children and adults along with special programs, lectures, and musical presentations that add extra dimensions to the art work on display.

Lovely museum. Small, but tastefully done. Quiet and easy to go from one exhibit to another. Was disappointed at having to pay but also realize the arts have a hard time. Very nice, informative staff and a well stocked, tho small gift shop.

I have an annual membership which is reasonable for unlimited access and special events. The museum has regular displays as well as new art provided throughout the year. It is a great atmosphere to learn and relax. They also have an area just for children. I highly recommend the Huntsville Museum.

This museum is always nice to visit but this time, it was over the top. All 5 non permanent exhibits were wonderful and we enjoyed the permanent exhibits too. Now selling Suzy Pops in the gift store so when you are leaving into the hot air outside, you can have a refreshing treat.

We we're only visiting, and wbet to "music in the park." It was very spacious and family friendly. Everyone seemed more prepared than us, with picnics and some little tables (definitely pros). Get there early if you want a good spot, but truth be told there isn't a bad spot in the whole area.
