There are numerous cultural attractions that can be found in and around the city of Allentown, which include various museums, art galleries, cultural theaters, and a number of historical monuments.

            The Allentown Art Museum was established in the 1930’s by Walter Emerson Baum and was part of the community for the next twenty years, before being rebuilt in grander fashion during the 50’s.  The museum is open from Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 5pm, on Sunday from noon to 5pm, and is closed on Mondays.  General Admission to the museum is $6, with student and senior discounts available.

            The Liberty Bell Museum has lots of information about the city’s most famous historical feature, which traveled through the city of Allentown from Philadelphia in 1777.  The museum is closed during the entire months of January and December, and open during specific days during the rest of the year.

      The Museum of Indian Culture, located in the Lehigh Parkway, has exhibits, artifacts, and special events that celebrate America's Native Peoples, including the Lenape/Delaware, Iroquois, Hopi, Sioux, and many more. It's open for tours Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12-4 for a small admission fee.
