We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. So many things to see. You need several hours to see all of the wonderful art and special attractions. You must see the “music room”. The firefly display is spectacular. The walls with black butterflies are beautiful. We visited The...More

So much to see and experience. There is dinning at the Museum Restaurant, with walls displaying a variety of art work, seating both inside and outside while some seasonal variances are observed. The immediate view to the east and then across the courtyard also includes...More

We really enjoyed the variety of works in this venue. There are Native American, Contemporary, European and other types of works on display. Be sure to see the Miniatures area, which was fascinating.

Phoenix is a spectacular sports city, but this is a limited offering of international art, with lots of Western art but not much from other continents -including Europe. Stunning interior architecture, good restaurant and gift shop. The best time to go: when a special travelling...More

When we first moved here, we visited the museum, on a Saturday during high season, and you could hear a pin drop. That was 2004, and the desolate museum felt more like an abandoned mausoleum, with a barely acceptable exhibit collection. Fast-forward to 2017. I...More

Spacious with great exhibits. Easy parking. Small gift shop. No restaurant inside in case you get hungry from walking around all day.
