  • Above the main lobby, in what used to be the Museum's administrative offices, is the Palice Gallery of Latin American Art. It's almost always empty of visitors, which is a shame: It houses pre-Columbi...  more »
  • The new spaces add to the museum and it's obvious that a lot of planning went into the architecture and placement of the art work.  more »
  • The current exhibit is "Dress Matters: Clothing as a Metaphor." We enjoyed it as well as the permanent exhibit. The museum is not huge but the art is good and this is Tucson afterall not NYC, Chicago ...  more »

  • My wife and I made it out one afternoon when the babysitter was cheap. So, admittedly I was already having a good day. But still, we had a great time. The exhibit at the time was a rug collection, and I never knew I could be interested in rugs! The facilities were immaculate, and even though it looks small from the outside of feels very open from within. Outside of the traveling rugs (flying carpets?) there were several southwestern exhibits and even a classical section which were rather impressive. All in all an enjoyable trip for sure. We might go back when a new exhibit comes into town.
  • An impressive collection, with new exhibits frequently. The members-only events are always enjoyable! We miss John from the gift shop, though!
  • Lovely museum with a great kids area.
  • Wonderful collection of Western art and rotating exhibits.
  • Great place to see art from all era, native American to latin to Picasso and warhol
