  • Very nice museum! If you live in Arizona this is a great place to stop. Wonderful history really enjoyed it! Looking forward to going again.
  • Beautiful western art and sculptures but I was really impressed with the architecture and decor of the facility. I'll go back!
  • So I'm not a big western fan, and I think people overdo the whole veneration of the Western mythos thing, but this place is so wonderful and an exception to my lack of fandom. The venue is beautiful, and the Taos group artwork is so good. I went there for an event but plan on making this a regular stop with out-of-town guests as part of the "Best-Things-to-See-in-Phoenix" tour that I do pretty often for out-of-town visitors. It's right up there with the botanical garden, hiking, and Vovomeena.
  • This is a world class museum! The changing exhibitions keep you wanting more. If you love the West, this is your place.
  • Wonderful visit , could of stayed longer. Closing time was 5:00 and we already spent 2 hours. Needed at least another hour.
