“Small but mighty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I have traveled all over Europe. Seen many paintings here that rival those from the louvre. My husband and I both agree that this little museum is a gem. If you go on Sunday's it is free.

“Nice classic art museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Nice museum but with very traditional art exhibits. If you go to visit any day but Sunday you will pay $12 each to see works of art which are pre-contemporary. So if you love that type of artwork then this would be a wonderful museum for you. Not a very big museum but you could spend time enjoying old world imagery and enjoy the quiet retreat from the city outside.

“gem in downtown allentown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is a small museum, but it has a lot to offer. Paintings that are 700+ years old to modern times, glass art, vintage clothing from the roaring twenties, and local high school student art. A great way to spend an afternoon.
