Hunter Museum of Art, Chattanooga, Tennessee TN

Description

The Hunter Museum of Art is in an exquisite modern building on bluffs over the Tennessee River. Look through the windows at gorgeous views of the blue Walnut Street Bridge and the houses across the river. The kids room, where there are fun art projects to make, has windows that curve around and offer marvelous views across the river. The other rooms feature art from many different eras. You can also walk inside the attached mansion and check out the historic decor and paintings. 
Outside are sculptures, in front of the museum, behind it over the river, and in front on a lower grassy area. If you walk to the east along 2nd Street you will come to another sculpture garden way high up over the river- truly bliss! This is my favorite part of Chattanooga, the Bluff View Art District. Have a cup of tea and a scone or delicious muffin at Rembrandt's Coffee on High Street.
This area reminds me so much of Sydney, where I grew up, with its turn of the century buildings and high high cliffs over water. I adore it!
Make sure you walk along the blue Walnut Street Bridge. Kids enjoy getting an ice cream at Ice Cream Show right by the bridge!
