The museum makes much of the modern American painters and photographers in their collection. Don’t look for them at the museum though. They’re warehoused. Just a gallery of Asian art and some large oils on display. Must be why this place is number 12 among...More

This place is awesome for an afternoon leisurely trip. The art offerings are shockingly good for a town the size of Amarillo and best of all it's FREE!!

This place is a hidden gem. Neat exhibits. Lots of space for classes. This is a first class operation that deserves an annual visit.

This was a really nice art museum. My one little complaint - there should be more dedicated parking JUST for the museum. The staff were excellent and friendly!
