The Allentown Art Museum is thrilled to welcome visitors back to the galleries in a way that prioritizes the health of our members, guests, staff, and volunteers. We have spent many weeks following and implementing evolving city, state, and federal recommendations for safely reopening to the public. Welcome back, everyone!

For an overview of the health and safety precautions we’ve put in place, see below.

Visitors are encouraged to reserve timed tickets and must wear an appropriate face covering to gain entry. Reserved ticket allows for a two-hour visit. If you are not feeling well, please visit another day. Walk-ins are welcome as capacity allows.
