I took a friend to see the Samurai exhibit which I had already seen(3 times). It is a most comprehensive and exciting show. The armor was amazing and you see something new each time. My friend was impressed. Since she had not been to the...More

Everything from modern ceramics to photography collections (we absolutely loved "The American Road"). And a jaw dropping collection of table sized "living rooms" from various periods - the detail of these miniatures is stunning. Merits more than one visit!

Located in Phoenix's "buzzy" new arts district, this large museum offers a wide range of art, from classic European, to Asian, and contemporary. Temporary exhibitions are also on offer. Currently the museum has a good exhibit of Samurai art and artifacts.

Its about 15-20 minutes... less if you go outside of rush hour :) The Museum is along the light rail also a great option.
