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

We visited the museum on Wednesday. From 3 - 9 it is free. The miniature room collection is wonderful. Amazing all the details in each room display. The highlight of our visit was the dark room with about 10 screens mounted on the walls. A...More

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

A neat place and a lot of interesting pieces. My little ones got a little bored so for older kids and adults it’s a fun place.

Every state seems to have one terrific, comprehensive art museum. This is it, for Arizona. Plan for a couple of hours for a walk-through, and then another hour or two for re-visiting your favorites.

I always try to visit art museums when I'm out of town. Glad to see this one has its fair share of Western art with medieval European art as well. A terrific collection. Not for pre-teen children as they will be very bored.

A museum of moderate size for a major American city, the Phoenix Art Museum has three floors of art ranging from early European works to contemporary art. The Firefly Infinity Room by Yayoi Kusama is a must-see and stirs feelings of delight and wonder. The...More
