Owner description: The Hunter offers amazing architecture, a stunning permanent collection and exciting temporary exhibitions, a museum store and café by Dipped Fresh. The Hunter Museum focuses on American art from the Colonial period to the present day. The variety of the collection inside is reflected by the architecture of the museum's exterior. The museum is housed in an early twentieth century mansion, a modern 1970s era building and a sleek, contemporary structure of steel and glass. The museum's collection includes paintings, works on paper, sculpture, photography, mixed media, video, furniture and contemporary studio glass covering a diverse range of styles and periods. A few of the well-known artists whose work is represented in the Hunter include Thomas Cole, Fitz Henry Lane, Winslow Homer, Robert S. Duncanson, Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, John Marin, Thomas Hart Benton, Helen Frankenthaler, Louise Nevelson, Jack Beal, George Segal, Duane Hanson, Robert Rauschenberg, Sam Gilliam, and Andy Warhol. The Hunter Museum is a 501 (C) 3 Non-Profit charitable institution.

“Local Attraction”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The museum was updated from its orginal structure of a Manson. However, the Mason is still apart of the museum attractiin with two stories of information about the family heritage. There was an Africian exhibit on display during my tour.

“Always Something New”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Amazing architecture, interactive exhibits, free on the first Sunday of every month. A real jewel -- check out the glass pedestrian bridge connecting it with the south end of the Walnut Street Bridge.
