Went with friends to a special lecture about a Franz Kline restored mural. Beautiful piece and a Very interesting discussion about the artist's work which spoke to all different levels of art exposure from beginning to expert. The museum also had a terrific photography show with a very good modern art section. Perfect local art experience on a Sunday afternoon... More

Small but nice place to take your family. There is even a children's area. It doesn't get very crowded so it is a nice rainy day activity.

My daughter and I have visited here at least once a year for the past 10 years. She enjoyed the craft area as a youngster and again last year as a 14 year old.

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
