  • This is a very good museum for a university. Includes two Tintorettos. Particularly liked the Kress collection, which I think is an acquired taste. The first floor was blocked off because they were building a new exhibit, so we didn't get to see that, so my judgment is based on just the second floor. It seemed to be run by students because I did not see an adult supervisor the whole time I was there.
  • Amazing collection spanning medieval to modern. The staff are wonderful and knowledgeable. My favorite works are the Calders and Chagalls!
  • Great collection.
  • Interesting works everwhere; there is a first story and second, very easy to get lost (figuratively) and lose track of time!
  • Great collection and shows, but the staff have always given me grief. Like a kid crying at Disneyland...come on, you are working at a museum, I'd think they would like being there.

Where to stay in Tucson

To discover the tranquility of the Sonoran Desert, book your stay at an inn just a short drive from Tucson. Staying on the outskirts of the city allows you quick and easy access to some of Arizona's wildest areas, though it does require a car if you wish to enjoy Tucson's shops and restaurants. For the ultimate in indulgence, consider one of the city's award-winning luxury resorts, which feature full-service spa and fitness centers, championship golf courses, lighted tennis courts, and indoor swimming pools.
