“Toulouse Lautrec Exhibit”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Really exciting to see the original drawings and posters stamped and signed by the artist and to learn about his life in a moving video presentation. Allentown Art Museum was alway fascinating but this last exhibit (shown only in a few cities in the US) impressed me with its cultural importance and brought tears to my eyes as I stood before the famous posters.

“Great little museum”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

It's worth a trip just to see the Frank Lloyd Wright designed library that is part of the permanent exhibit. They also hvae some Bertoia sculptures. The current special exhibit is Toulouse Lautrec. The previous one was flapper fashions and Haitian art. Very nice. Sunday is family day and there are activities for children and i believe admission is free. They have reciprocity with America on Wheels so if you join you get free admission to AOW.

“World class art in Allentown”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a really wonderful museum. Their permanent collections are interesting and they do a surpeb job with special exhibits.

The current Toulouse-Latrec exhibit is great, particularly if you attend the French Friday tour with a museum employee.

“Lautrec Exhibit”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Run, don't walk. This well curated exhibit includes a video to give you a real feel for Lautrec's short life. The collection includes a number of smaller study pieces, and rare posters. Envoy the vignette with the Absinthe. I really enjoyed the in depth feel of the temporary exhibit. Parking may be a challenge.

“Big exhibit in little museum”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 via mobile

Hats off to this small museum for doing an absolutely first rate job with the Toulouse-Latrec exhibit currently running through Labor Day, lovingly arranged and just full of wonderful artwork, don't miss a terrific exhibit in a warm and inviting small museum. Far better than some splashy exhibits I have attended in NY and Philadelphia
