We decided last minute to visit on the "pay what you wish" Wednesday night. (and free parking!) The museum was much larger than we had anticipated and had a nice selection of traditional and modern art.
Ample free parking and an entrance through a lovely cactus garden start off a relaxing, leisurely half day venture. The Western artists naturally form the most interesting part of the permanent collection. The European art is fine, though lacking big names. I was happy to...More
I left the museum feeling ripped off. Nearly $60 for the two of us to see some paper butterflies and some christmas lights in a dark room. I'm being a little grumpy here. I like more experienced or famous artists, Warhol, Miro, Picasso, Twombly, Matisse,...More
The Phoenix Art Museum is visually beautiful. The second Sunday of each month is free to visitors. There are special events that cost a minimum amount of money. We entered to 25,000 paper butterflies scattered along the walls and ceilings. Amazing! Especially nice staff who...More

The Phoenix Art museum is really quite a treat. The Yayoi Kusama installation was our main reason for visiting and it did not disappoint! We were watchful of the field trip groups and timed our exploring to avoid the larger groups. The docents were very...More
We travel to art museums all over the world and I look for the speciality of each. As a local, you might enjoy the Phoenix Art Museum as your hometown encyclopedic museum, but for us the European collection was weak. We breezed through on our...More

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

"You who are being obliterated in the flying swarm of Fireflies" is located in the South Wing on the top floor (technically the second but there is a mezzanine between the first and second floors). It is a wonderful experience, the art is all around you! Be careful, don't bump into the mirrored walls.
