The Huntington Museum of Art is an art museum located in the hills above Ritter Park in Huntington, West Virginia. It is the largest art museum between "Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Richmond" and contains numerous collections, exhibitions, education programs and nature trails that sprawl on a 52-acre (210,000 m2) campus. The collections include American and European paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, as well as glass pieces manufactured in West Virginia and the Ohio Valley, American folk art, Chinese and Japanese decorative items, 18th and early 19th century British silver, Haitian art, firearms, and material culture objects from the Near East.
The grounds are also home to the C. Fred Edwards Conservatory, West Virginia's only plant conservatory. It features numerous "subtropical plants and seasonal displays" where guided tours are offered upon request.
