What a gem! Allentown is lucky to have such a special place. The Frank Lloyd Wright room was a neat attraction. Gift shop very nice. Friendly workers and volunteers. It's small but very interesting, we'll worth a visit. Thursday nights they are open till 8, and it's free admission after 5.

Often I have been there to see the various new exhibits and over the years have been impressed by the quality of the rotating exhibits. The permanent collection also changes although some are always displayed. It's a nice way to spend an hour or two and there are also programs for adults and kids at times.

Friendly reception, brilliant Italian Renaissance collection, tightly curated collection of paintings, sculpture and textiles make this gem of an art museum a must see in the Lehigh Valley. This collection is just the right size to explore and enjoy. In addition there is an excellent cafe by creative caterer Karen Hunter and a terrific museum shop with something for anyone.

Nice place to visit to view galleries. Special galleries change every few months. Sunday afternoons free admission and kids can make free projects. Also, have special events - concerts, displays, etc.

Free admission on Sundays. They have workshops for kids, although mine weren't so interested in joining in. Nice selection of art, and the place is very clean

I highly recommend going to the museum on a Sunday because it is free. I find $12.00 to be a bit pricey for the size of the museum. I feel there is some art periods that are under represented in the museum and some pieces that should not be there. (Cardbird) but overall it's a good trip to experience a... More

The museum has an outstanding collection of fine Renaissance and other European art. Not my thing, but certainly worth a trip. The American art collections are more contemporary and varied and very interesting. No temporary exhibition when I went, but many of the exhibits on the calendar sound like reasons to return.
