  • 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.
  • Great museum with artist from all over the world. The staff is very helpful and maintains the museum well. Sign up for free access all year for US Veterans and a guest! A must see for visitors to Arizona.
  • Some classmates and I took a trip here for our Humanities class. This is honestly a lovely museum. They provide free lockers for you to put your stuff in. The staff are very helpful, and friendly. The museum has many pieces of fascinating art for your viewing. After spending time in the museum some of us stopped for a bite to eat in the museum's restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing!
  • This is a wonderful art museum! Beautiful architecture and outdoor gardens! A little bit of every kind of art here - well worth the admission price. The docent led tours are fantastic!
  • Not a large museum, but a very pleasant one to visit that frequently hosts great special exhibits and events. Free parking is available in the uncovered lot beside the museum, but you may struggle to find a space on busy nights such as First Fridays. Entry is frequently free, so it may be worth checking for an upcoming free day before you go. They stay open late and are a trolley stop for First Fridays. The in-museum bar/restaurant is quite decent, as well. If you appreciate art and are in the Phoenix area, you really should go here at least once!
