First Night Talbot

We visited during the New Year's Eve celebration. We enjoyed the exhibits on display. Our 15 year old found it to be the most engaging of our stops that evening.

This is a great art museum, very tapped into the local artist community. It showcases the artwork of both artists and teachers. The upstairs is devoted to activity rooms and a photography gallery. Downstairs are gallery rooms, including sculpture and mixed media artwork. There is outdoor sculpture, as well. My complaint is that the building itself is choppy with no... More

My wife, daughter, and I visited the museum on a hot day. Walking into the well-cooled facility and being greeted by friendly staff was helpful. The artwork is done by local artists and consists of a mixture of media. Each item is professionally displayed - the rooms are expansive - it was like other larger art museums I have visited....

While spending a day visiting Easton and other surrounding areas, I decided to check out the Academy Art Museum. I guess I was miffed a bit at the name, which indicated to me it was an art school. Well, I do believe there are art labs on the 2nd level, but most of the building houses art galleries. The Museum... More

We were in Easton and the person at the Visitors Center highly recommended the walk to the Art Academy Museum. We walked to the museum only to find that there were currently no exhibits in the museum and it was closed. There was no indication of that fact outside of the museum. The poor review is for the poor overall... More

The Academy Art Museum is not only a community treasure, its a window on to the world on notable arts. I love the exhibits featured there, in addition to the permanent collection. The trips to major collections in other cities always delivers a day of relaxation, camaraderie and lasting memories. The Academy offers useful classes of all types and exemplary... More

The modest entrance fee belies the beautifully curated exhibits. The building is lovely and totally suitable for viewing the collections. A relatively short stop (about an hour) and totally worthwhile.

This facility was unknown to us until we walked around town. So glad we stumbled upon it. The staff was wonderful and the value was good.
