  • Neat exhibits showcasing the lives and culture of the southwest Native Americans. Nice variety of pieces both old and new, tapestry and pottery to sculpture and jewelry. Even better with free admission as a ROAM member!
  • I believe this museum is rated in the top 5 in the country and I can see why. Breath taking, absolute must when visiting Phoenix. Plan on being there all day, so much to see and absorb. A little more expensive than what we had expected, but worth it.
  • Beautiful exhibits, very informative free guided tour. Very relaxed and not too crowded.
  • I went here for a couple of hours. I ended up staying for over 5hrs. Make sure that you go on some of the decent tours, they are so very enthusiastic about the many subjects. I found that the fact that art covering the last 2,000 years can be found within.
  • Love that they give you a sticker with a gold star on it as your "ticket" for admission. Open during First Fridays, just have to provide your zip code to check in before entering.
