This museum is small, but has a very nice collection of art of varying types. There were quite a number of unusual art pieces that used non traditional media which made them very interesting. The museum has no fee, plenty of parking, is in a good location, and is a place well worth taking an hour or two to visit.

They have four O'Keeffes--wouldn't you think they would rotate them so one is always on view? Nice building, but the objects we came to see (Japanese wood block prints in addition to the O'Keeffes) were not on display.

I guess not being an art aficionado, maybe I'm not smart enough to figure out how to get in the place right a way. The entrance is not readily apparent, and we went in the doors on the east side which take you down into the lowest level. There is no signs saying "go upstairs" to the receptionist. Anyway, we...

A museum this nice is rare for a small college campus to host. There are ongoing exhibits featuring local, regional and worldwide works of art. If you are looking for a fun night out, check to see what is going on at this museum; they host lectures and other fun activities throughout the year. It also is a lovely space... More

Small museum on the site of Amarillo College with rotating exhibits and a small permanent collection. Very well displayed and not too busy (when we were there). Definitely worth the time if you are in the area

I enjoyed this lovely small museam on a Saturday afternoon. At that time of my visit, they had two floors that were displaying art. Usually there is an additional floor, but it seems they had just had some type of exhibit and it had ended, therefore the 3rd floor was empty. The library on the top floor is a great... More
