“A Very Nice Place to Visit !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

This museum is small, but has a very nice collection of art of varying types. There were quite a number of unusual art pieces that used non traditional media which made them very interesting. The museum has no fee, plenty of parking, is in a good location, and is a place well worth taking an hour or two to visit.

“Diverting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

They have four O'Keeffes--wouldn't you think they would rotate them so one is always on view? Nice building, but the objects we came to see (Japanese wood block prints in addition to the O'Keeffes) were not on display.

“Nice little art gallery, a little confusing finding the entrance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

I guess not being an art aficionado, maybe I'm not smart enough to figure out how to get in the place right a way. The entrance is not readily apparent, and we went in the doors on the east side which take you down into the lowest level. There is no signs saying "go upstairs" to the receptionist.

Anyway, we enjoyed it. They had a wonderful collection of Asian sculptures, Afghan weaving, and a lot of really cool photography. Among a lot of other items too numerous to mention.

It would be a great place for a guy to take a girl on a date and impress her with his sensitive qualities. It is free, and it takes an hour or two to really look it over.

“Smallish art museum, free entry, free parking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Located on a university campus this art museum was a nice surprise in amarillo Texas. Admission is free. Most of the items on display were loaned o the museum. First floor currently has modern art display from a well known artist. The second floor consists of an Asian art collection, mostly from the 1800 but still with many older pieces some dating back to BC. The lower floor housed several large tapestries of Asian orgin.

“Hidden Gem on College Campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

A museum this nice is rare for a small college campus to host. There are ongoing exhibits featuring local, regional and worldwide works of art. If you are looking for a fun night out, check to see what is going on at this museum; they host lectures and other fun activities throughout the year. It also is a lovely space available for private events.
