  • Easy to get to. Ample parking. Beautiful facility. Friendly staff. I enjoyed the European and Modern/Contemporary galleries the most. Cool miniature room. Disappointed that many galleries were closed when I visited (March 1). I’d say 1/3 of the museum was in transition. Just two sculptures in the “sculpture garden”, no Picasso or Rodin on display as listed on website. No notice on website that I could see. Pricey ($18) given such closures. Will try again another time.
  • I brought my children here and now I bring my grand children here. Check the website to see when they have free events but I usually come several times a year to see the current exhibits. The parking lot is north of the building. There's always lots of employees and volunteers to make your visit enjoyable. Make sure you give yourself at least 2-3 hours to walk through all of the exhibit halls. The first Friday of every month the Museum is open from 6pm to 10pm. Its.part of the Phoenix Art Walk.
  • Very nice and interesting exhibits. It is fairly spread out between north and south towers and several levels. Great exhibits, friendly staff and a wonderful restaurant. Great place to relax.The Museum has a great variety of different art.
  • Nice clean building. Staff were happy to be there. They have a nice modern art gallery. Definitely worth stopping by while in Phoenix.
  • Excellent exhibits, plenty to see. Was really impressed with the variety of art on display. This was a great place to spend the day. Will definitely return in the future.
