Often the Museum of Art staff are asked to look at a painting, antique or family heirloom and give our opinion on its value. The Huntsville Museum of Art does not have our own appraisers on staff, but we do have a comprehensive list to help those in need of advice. If you are curious how much an artifact or painting is worth, please take a look at our list.

Please note, the below listed appraisers and conservators are for information purposes only and are not an endorsement or recommendation of their services by the Huntsville Museum of Art.
