This museum tries its hardest to be a general art history museum in a part of the country in which these things are rare. The museum has a small, but choice, collection of Asian art. The second floor has the best works: European paintings from the Renaissance through the modern era, and a representative selection of American items from the... More

I love the Phoenix art museum. Check with your bank to see if they run a special offer to visit. When we went they had black butterflies in 3D that sweep from reception into the museum. Which looked stunning

There are a few pieces that are gorgeous, but there is nothing that will blow your mind or draw an art thief. The environment is clean and inviting; the staff is very kind and helpful.

First of all let me say, I hate visiting museums, but we have 3 here in Phoenix that are worth seeing and that you will love. #1 is the Phoenix Art Museum with it's ever changing exhibits.
