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.

This museum is not too big, not too small. It has a wide variety of art and interesting temporary collections. My teenage boys never complain, so that says a lot.

This museum is located in a historic home built by one of Chattanooga's founders. The home's history and its collection offers an educational experience and creative inspiration. And it has a ghost!

When the temperature is near 100, it's hard to enjoy the parks, River walk, and other outdoor activities in there middle of the day. This was the perfect alternative for us. We stayed about 2 hours and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The time we randomly chose to go was during Christmas on our anniversary. It may have been accident but we showed up and they had a classical music group playing music in the hall area. The museum was great for art lovers!

With it being an art museum in Tennessee, I had low expectations. I was impressed though! It offers traveling exhibits from well known artists and has a nice collection. Parking is free too!

We went to this gallery on a whim looking to escape a hot walking day outside for an hour or so. To our surprise, my husband and I spent a couple hours looking at the works on display. Classy museum in the heart of Chattanooga....More

I would say, kids over 10 may find it more interesting. There are art activities , but would say they are for kids over 10. If your 7 year old is especially interested in creating art, then it may be OK.
