About Us
For almost five decades, the Huntington Museum of Art has been defined by a vision, a vision of bringing the world of art to the people of West Virginia and the Tri-State region. That vision, nurtured by the generosity of museum founders and supporters, has led to the creation of a truly distinguished museum, the finest in the state and the largest between Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Richmond. It boasts an exceptional collection, innovative exhibitions and educational programs, a landmark facility, and an extraordinary 52-acre site where art and nature blend in harmony.

Today, visitors enjoy the beauty of glass, particularly that from the Ohio Valley; the wisdom and whimsy of Appalachian folk art; the functional artistry of American furniture and firearms; the serenity of 19th and 20th century American and European paintings; and the intricacy of Islamic prayer rugs. They can ponder the exotic mysteries of Middle Eastern arts; the exquisite acrobatics of sculptures by Calder and Rickey; and the marvels of nature's own canvas.

The museum also serves as a point of growing pride for the state and the region - a dynamic cultural center where art and nature educate and inspire visitors and residents alike. The Huntington Museum of Art is carrying the legacy into the 21st century.

We accidentally left the interstate near Huntington and stumbled upon signs for the art museum on a roadtrip. Best thing that happened that day of the trip. The museum itself is very well maintained and clean, the displays ranged from folk art and near Eastern pieces to a history of firearms display and candid photographs of performers from the jazz age. The conservatory had a wonderful variety of plants and a few poison dart frogs. Would absolutely recommend to anyone that wants to spend some time in Huntington VA.

A neat museum with exhibits varying from ceramics, glass, guns, and an unexpectedly large collection of oil and watercolor paintings. I particularly liked the Julie Chen art book exhibit. I wasn't expecting a huge museum for this city, and I wasn't disappointed. Also learned about an artist Howard Somerville who painted a large portrait at the museum. It's always neat to learn new things!

Doesn't always have the best exhibits but it's still a very nice museum and a nice feature for the city to have. Saturday free kids art classes are great and well instructed.
