Hunter Museum of American Art
Perched on an 80-foot bluff on the edge of the Tennessee River, the Hunter Museum of American Art offers stunning views of the river and the surrounding mountains. This panorama is equaled only by the exceptional collection of American art inside recognized as one of the country's finest.
Great place to support the arts and enjoy views of the Tennessee River in the heart of downtown.
If you are an art lover, check this place out! It's centrally located near the walnut walking bridge and makes a great detour on a hot day!

Great for local art! Also all throughout downtown near the museum is amazing art if you don't want to actually go in throughout this year there is amazing pieces of art!
Great local art museum that has great views and is close to everything downtown.
“My Favorite thing in town, however, I LOVE ANIMALS. It takes roughly 2-3-1/2 hours to walk through both buildings. Everything is amazing, except for the penguin exhibit. It's a bit small for my liking, but it's relatively new.”
“Walking about Northshore and the "Walking Bridge" is a lot of fun. There is a park below it on the river called Coolidge Park and it is nice. Ruby Falls is great if you have never been, one of those things that you need to see once. ”
“Rock City is a classic attraction--very cool rock formations and an easy walk through. Dogs on leashes are ok. Restaurant on site.”
“Another local favorite in the Southside district, between St. Elmo and downtown. Their food and drink menu is worth the visit! They also have a great patio area for when the weather is nice.”
