  • Great layout and exhibitions! a lot to see and it is free to the public on Thursdays! Definitely a great way to start or end a day in Allentown. Lots of pieces from many eras and some great exhibitions on local artists. They also tend to have some live events from time to time so keep your finger on the pulse.
  • It's free for the family on Sundays my kids loved it.
  • Great collection they have here!!!! Recommend!!! A lot more than I expected
  • Beautifully accessible works of great beauty. Perfect for introducing art to young minds. Unmatched source of art by indigenous artists.
  • Nice art museum for downtown Allentown; couldn't get one of the few visitors spaces, so parking is likely for the parking decks around the area. Good selection of mostly European and Hispanic history. The Allentown Symphony Orchestra members provided some tunes in the cafĂ© during the summer when I visited.
