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.

This is a small museum but a nice one. They have a Frank Lloyd Wright library rebuilt inside that came from a house of his they tore down. The museum has changing exhibits and a good collection of permanent work.

The only thing wrong with this museum is that it is so far off the beaten path. Really, a gem of a museum-- a must see if you are in the area.

Really enjoyed the visit to this small museum that has an unexpectedly strong collection and first class presentation. The Frank Wright Library was a treat.
