Haven't been there recently but the few times I have been, this museum is excellent for a "regional" venue (as opposed to big city such as Philadelphia) and I've enjoyed some excellent special exhibits such as Pa. Impressionism and Amish quilts).

For a mid-sized city, this art museum is a gem! Recently renovated and expanded, the galleries always have some wonderful surprises. The Frank Lloyd Wright room is worth the visit alone!

thumbs up! Great little cafe. Been to this museum twice for IlluxCon. Great show - great permanent items on display. Hope to go back again this fall.

Located in downtown Allenown, this museum is conveniently located, with parking on street and nearby. There are regularly scheduled special exhibits, such as Indian art; art glass; graphic work of Toulouse Lautrec, well-known Depression Era photography. The cafe is attractive with glass walls and serves healthy small plates. Elevator to other floors. Nice gift shop. Two hours here are we'll-spent.

This summer, just like last summer has free admission! You can't beat that! We had a calm, pleasant walk through the exhibits where I was able to share my love of art with my teenage daughter who hadn't been there since grade school.

I love these smaller museums; they are so vital and exciting. I wanted to go through each gallery at least twice. Wonderful art; free admission this summer!

We went again today to the Allentown Art Museum. It is free all summer and free on Sundays all year. And on Sundays at 2:00 there is a free tour of their latest exhibit and activities for children. We go every time there is a new exhibit and spend a little time also seeing their permanent exhibits.

The museum's collection is a treat to see any time. But last month visited for the Annual Gala Fundraiser and had a Lovely evening. The Auction included several lovely pieces of jewelry and art. Not sure why there wasn't more competitive bidding. I got some pieces at lower bid price than I expected to pay. And the items were all... More

This small museum is a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon. They always have new exhibits and the new addition as a lovely gift shop. On the second floor there is specific area just for kids. This is also a great place to hold an event.

If you have not checked it out, you really need to do that. I think the museum displays are organized well. It is such a relaxing way to spend time to go through this Art Museum. One of my favorite displays is the Frank Lloyd Wright Room they were so blessed to get many years ago. This is still one... More
