  • Beautiful permanent and rotating collections. There is a wide variety of art to see, so anyone can find something that interests them. The staff is friendly and the place is very clean and well maintained. The garden is a pretty spot to spend some time, too.
  • Great exhibitions which are really varied so something for everyone, and something new/different for everyone. Loved the mirror room. A special thank you to all the staff, ESPECIALLY Richard the volunteer at the front door who was so pleasant and took his time to greet and be interested in every customer. A* service I hope he receives my thanks and he receives positive feedback and a thumbs up!
  • Although wanting to visit the Phoenix Art Museum since making Phoenix our new home, I was drawn to visit as not to miss an opportunity to experience the Andy Warhol Exhibit. That exhibit was not a letdown, neither was the Museum as a whole! I was amazed at the size and scope of the institution and its fabulous array of art work on display. The institution has an amazing array of activities abound, depending on how much time you desire to spend there. They offer lectures and talks, varying and changing exhibitions, a fabulously amazing restaurant for this venue, and an enviable layout conducive to the admiration of incredible works that include American and Southwestern art to Contemporary and Latin American showings. My only recommendation to those who wish to enjoy Masterworks from American, Latin American, European and Asian paintings and/or sculpture and even fashion, is to visit their website to best plan your formidable and enjoyable visit. This is a must visit when in the Valley of Sun!
  • Fantastic museum ... interesting layout. The exhibits were really cool, and the staff was really nice and helpful. I recommend a visit but please consider it is a large museum and will take up a lot of time if you read signs & want to see everything.
  • Loved out! There is something around every corner both inside and outside. Just walking up to the building we got a good amount of photos. It was very informative, colorful and detailed. I've thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend it to everyone!
