I have lived over 40 years in the Lehigh Valley, but only recently visited this hidden gem. We were pleasantly surprised at this museum and its offerings. The first floor contains its permanent collection. We are Frank Lloyd Wright fans and totally enjoyed the Library designed by him. Also we enjoyed the American art area. We really went to see the visiting exhibition of Gene London's Designing Hollywood collection of movie costumes etc. The second floor is the rotating area of the museum and the family interactive area. My only drawback would be the parking with only a few spots outback reserved for visitors, otherwise it's street parking. The city art walk is across the street.

We were pleasantly surprised by the Allentown Art Museum's very rich collections! The museum is small, but has some excellent work by Frank Lloyd Wright, Susan Eakins, and many others. Free on Sundays, too! A museum alive with art and community.

This is a gem of an art museum with a wonderful collection of art that represents the passing of time, and generations. From relevant modern and contemporary pieces to mind-blowing medieval paintings, a Frank Llyod Wright room and more, A great little cafe and shop too.
