Huntington Museum of Art


The Huntington Museum of Art sits on 52 acres and has permanent displays of glass, British Silver and portraits, antique firearms, and Near Eastern artifacts. HMA features traveling exhibits and has a tropical plant conservatory and nature trails. 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.
