I enjoy going to the Phoenix Art Museum a couple times a year. The exhibits are interesting and the permanent collection has a lot of interesting contemporary work.

I have been here many times, just to view or for events. I am from NYC so I am used to many places like this. It is professional run, great exhibits and makes you want to come back.

Excellent collection of art and objects. We loved the special Fashion exhibit on display, as well as the Fireflies exhibit and the miniatures exhibit. There is something here for everyone to enjoy! I highly suggest a map as the directional signage isn't very good.

We loved the pieces out front of the museum and the waterfall display. There are a lot of exhibits inside the museum, plenty to see. I just though the layout was really confusing and did not find all the exhibits. There is a lot of...More

Enjoy the traveling shows as well as the permanent displays. I miss the Cowboy Artists of the West showing, however. We always looked forward to that.
