An exceptional art museum which is enthralling for all ages. The Firefly exhibit is a must but would advise that young children are kept in hand while in the exhibit. There is lots of wonderful art work to cover all tastes. This also shows how...More

This is a very pleasant space that lacks a serious collection. There are a few notable paintings, with an interior by Vuillard that's especially nice. But other cities that are in Phoenix's size range (Philadelphia, Boston, Detroit, Cleveland, etc.) boast far better works and represent...More

This is a very easy and affordable museum to check out. I'm surprised how few people (even locals) take the time to visit. Go! Great permanent collection and I loved the exhibit "Being 13", moved me to tears actually.

This museum is very large and has various types of art. The layout is somewhat convoluted but there is a very nice gift shop and lots of parking. If you are local you can check your library for free admission tickets.

One entire wing closed, back galleries unlit and small, warren-like. Main hall closed for some event (curse of modern museums today)

Hello! We had to close Katz Wing to ensure guest safety due to a situation out of our control on November 11. We hope you will come back soon and explore all Phoenix Art Museum has to offer!
