Tennessee Valley Museum of Art

Museum in The Shoals

This museum's permanent exhibition showcases the Martin Petroglyph, which is a must-see artifact for anyone interested in pre-Colombian history: a boulder 600 to 1000 years old, inscribed with human footprints, stylized snakes and other symbols.

Temporary exhibits run an eclectic gamut, from Christmas trees to folk art to works by Helen Keller.
