I've lived only about 2 miles from this place for months and never knew it existed until this week. Glad I found it. Free. Ask about the postcard tour. None of the paintings have any info by them other than the name of the painting...More

Tuscaloosa Museum of Art. Calling it an art museum is a misnomer, as it’s really an art collection in the Westerveld Company headquarters. But it’s free, and the collection, while small, has some good and some interesting paintings, many by known artists. Highlights include a...More

Located in a lovely building in Tuscaloosa, visitors are often surprised to find a pretty great collection of American Art in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The collection is not what it once was, but Jack Warner's collection is still worth seeing.

A very nice collection of mostly American artists. Jack Warner, of Gulf States Paper fame, built and filled the museum with things he loved. There is a lovely Japanese inspired garden. A little gem, be sure to see it.
