I had a few hours before my flight this afternoon so stopped in at the museum of art. Very quiet and relaxing as I took my time looking at the exhibits. Security was helpful pointing out what was on each floor, as well. No charge for admission, be sure to leave a small monetary gift in the box at the... More

Thank you so much for visiting AMoA...the salt bags are one of our curator's favorite items as well! We hope you will come back for our next exhibition, Side by Side: Larry Bell and Gabriel Dawe, opening on July 15. More

What a cool museum with a variety of local art! It's clear that many of these artists are willing to take risks and try new and unique media...the results are a very creative and inspirational set of exhibits. We will visit again when we're in town!

There is an interesting Mixed Media exhibition at the museum, very different, ephemeral materials used and one piece that makes a lot of noise. The Price collection of Asian Art is very good.

They were in the middle of changing exhibits so only one floor was available for viewing. It was the top floor which houses an incredible Asian collection from an Amarillo doctor. We were very surprised at the extent of the works. Glad we went.

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
