Well managed small city museum.

The ATown Art Museum has a nice house collection and is able to pull in some fine travelling exhibits, too.

I loved the kinetic art installations that you could ask the guard to play for you. This museum had a showcase of some older Christmas card art, as well as a large room of some early modern European art -- paintings and sculpture. This is a must-do if you're in the Allentown area.

I especially like the Preview Parties this Museum hosts for its members when new exhibits open. Over the years, they have embraced a very diverse set of themes and mediums. With the renovation, they now have more space and are very friendly. The gift shop and snack bar are first rate. Come visit this gem - right in the heart... More

Went with my heart set on seeing a part of the Lloyd Wright and was not disappointed. Interesting information. It seemed more like a gallery than a museum. I was a little disappointed that the 3rd floor was closed. And they had an exhibition on Clinton & trump I didn't care for. Staff was friendly. Across the street they a... More

An Allentown gem the museum houses a permanent collection and various special attractions. Crowds are usually small so there is plenty of time to stand or sit and enjoy whatever strikes your fancy.

Was in the area for weekend and stopped in to see. It is a small gallery but has some interesting exhibitions. Would include if in the area for other attractions, not a destination site.

I have always visited this art museum. Brought my children when they were small and now they all have a wonderful appreciation for the arts. I love to come here alone to just walk around and enjoy all the art and atmosphere. Friendly staff is very willing to explain things and answer questions if you have them.

I visited specifically to view the Lewis Hine exhibit, and was not disappointed in that. I haven't been here for many years and was pleasantly surprised with their renovations. They have 5 free parking spaces behind the museum (not a problem to get a space if you arrive when they open). Sundays are free, making it a perfect time to... More
