The artwork was beautiful and the day that I was there, they had a couple dancing and other people honoring the Hispanic culture. They even have a section... More

Very nice gallery with interesting visiting exhibits. It's a shame it doesn't seem to get as much traffic as it deserves

Sunday it is free to get into the museum. I have taken my children here many times. On the third floor they offer interactive crafts for the children to experience the museum in a hands on way. Great time for the family and a great place to take children!

The Allentown Art Museum is worth the stop. Besides the regular showcase paintings they bring in great exhibits throughout the year. You can also host an event at the Museum with a separate room for meetings or banquets.

Well stocked and run for a small town museum. There is a large religious gallery upon entering the museum and a fine American artist gallery on ground floor. Several well-heeled and successful local families have contributed art, time and money to ensure the success of the museum. Do visit if in town.

As I stated in past reviews of other venues, I am always looking for something free or inexpensive to do with my grandchildren on weekends. Usually I take them out in the Allentown/Bethlehem area where they live. I do lots of internet searches to find something new, exciting, different, and stimulating. Two weeks ago, I found that the Allentown Art... More

I'm far from an art expert but I know what I like when I see it, and what I love about this museum is its unpretentious accessibilty to works of art that range from highbrow to obscure. Friendly, helpful staff, easy access, very cool facility and reasonable fees, too. Check it out when the museum hosts a cool "pop art"... More

A little hidden gem... did not expect it to be so interesting and stayed for hours. Nice touch is the gift shop and also the little cafe, good food.

Now as you've seen in my other reviews when you've been to The Met, the Louvre and the Hermitage this isn't that....but nor is it meant to be. The "of heaven and earth" collection and the prior Lautrec exhibits are WELL worth a visit. It's a place that you can't spend days passing through but it's worth a couple visits.... More
