4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014 NEW

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

Both of them were so sweet and pose with my daughter and I took their photos that I treasure.I also bought the book... 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

I enjoyed this museum very much, but my experience was marred by getting a parking ticket in a lot marked for visitors where, it seems, only SOME of the spots are for visitor parking. When I complained the security guard said he gave a lot of tickets that day. Obviously poorly marked!

It is a nice size Museum for a afternoon visit, the standart paintings are exceptional for a Museum this size. They get good exhibits that rotate on a regular bases.

Went with mom to see OF HEAVEN AND EARTH: 500 Years of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums, glad we previewed the art before we caught the guided tour of this, made it easier to see details up close rather than in the crowd. Also worthwhile are ongoing collections of American art, and caught the quilts installment as well. Highly recommend... More

This was a much better experience than I could have hoped for. I went with a group of friends and we were personally escorted through the various rooms representing periods in time. Very, very nice.
