This place is awesome for an afternoon leisurely trip. The art offerings are shockingly good for a town the size of Amarillo and best of all it's FREE!!

This place is a hidden gem. Neat exhibits. Lots of space for classes. This is a first class operation that deserves an annual visit.

This was a really nice art museum. My one little complaint - there should be more dedicated parking JUST for the museum. The staff were excellent and friendly!

Displays are always different and full of variety. I am amazed at all of the local artistic talent. I really enjoy when the students are displaying their talent.
