Other than having to wait 30 minutes to get in because the person responsible for opening it was late, the exhibits were worth seeing. The Egyptian and Asian artifacts, while few in number, were beautiful as were the glass-encased Japanese sculptures. There are two floors of art and the art is displayed well. Worth a visit that will likely take... More

I am an Activity Director here in Amarillo and I am always looking for different outings into our community. The Security Guys were so helpful, respectful, and really listened to these young at heart women! They also took time to explain different items and genuinely care! Personally I go all the time because it changes constantly and everyone is always... More

Every time I visit for various exhibits, I appreciate this resource in our city. Having several levels and an atrium, while not large, the museum is s great gathering-place and showcase for local and regional art. I especially enjoy the student exhibits from the local schools and colleges. It has an impressive Asian collection and some O'Keefe's, which I would... More

This is a small museum with a great Asian collection, emphasizing unique carved sculpture from Cambodia. You would not expect to find this collection in Amarillo, but there it is. Also of note is its American art and contemporary art. The building is by Edward Durell Stone in 1972. It's plain but shows off the art rather well. It's about... More

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...

Located on a university campus this art museum was a nice surprise in amarillo Texas. Admission is free. Most of the items on display were loaned o the museum. First floor currently has modern art display from a well known artist. The second floor consists of an Asian art collection, mostly from the 1800 but still with many older pieces... More

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
