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.

Some cool gems in the permanent collection (Hals, Canaletto, Tintoretto, Stuart, West, Bierstadt, Frank Lloyd Wright, among others) and very interesting traveling exhibits. Recent expansion and renovation is well done and highlights the permanence and cultural relevance of the institution. New cafe is welcome too. Very child- and family- friendly with a large playroom, studio, and age-appropriate activities. Very much... More

I love this museum. It's the right size to feel like you're experiencing art, culture, heritage, and fun. It's also great for kids, esp. on Sundays when there's free admission, and a Crayola themed event for the kiddos. There's always some type of special exhibit, and if your little ones like animals, there's a whole section related to animal painting,... More

It is sad to say it, but I went to this small local art museum, simply to see the Frank Lloyd Wright room that they have there. One of his houses was bought by the Met and they gave one of the rooms to the Allentown Art Museum, the Library to be exact. it was delightful to see it (very... More

A great thing to do on a rainy day (or any other time). It has a respectable collection from all different periods, including a Frank Lloyd Wright room. Their temporary exhibits are always interesting A few months ago we went to a Toulouse Lautrec exhbit. Yesterday we went to an exhibit of American Wildlife Art with many of Audubon's prints.... More
