    The Allen art museum is designed to look like an Italian palazzo. The older portion of the building certainly shows this, with a central courtyard with embellished ceiling and upper-story arcades.

The art is well-curated, with a rotation of items on display that encompass the wide variety of visual arts throughout the ages. There is stuff by artists that you would not expect to find in a small-town museum.

    I come here most Sundays, it's a very quiet, clean & comfortable environment and the exhibits are impressive.
