I enjoyed my visit to this museum. It’s a very nice place in a great location and they have done a terrific job of blending the new part of the museum with the old mansion. It’s worth the $15 admission to walk around this place...More

Who knew that Chattanooga had a world class American art museum? It seems as if every important American artist is represented there! Beautiful exhibits, beautiful building and location. A wonderful surprise and we are so glad we went!

Had never heard about the museum before my visit and was absolutely bowled over by the quality of the collection and the thoughtfulness with which it was displayed. A must see!

Kudos to Chattanooga for having such a high quality museum of American art. I have been to several special exhibits; one on Mexican photography, one on Impressionism, one on artists of the depression...etc. The permanent exhibit goes from Early American through contemporary.

Enjoyed a leisurely afternoon soaking up every kind of American art imaginable. $15 each admission, $14 for seniors, free on first Thursdays. The paragraph description by almost every displayed item was particularly helpful for me who knows little about art.

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.
