The nationally accredited Museum fills its seven 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 2,300-piece permanent collection also forms the basis for several exhibitions each year.

The Huntsville Museum of Art, North Alabama's leading visual arts center, moved to its new beautiful facility in Big Spring International Park in March 1998.  The Museum is gaining a reputation throughout the South for bringing high-caliber touring exhibitions to the region.
