This museum has beautiful examples of western art paintings and sculptures. Even the building itself, The Navarro Building, has a fascinating history too!

I live in Arizona and was pleased to see a very large collection dedicated to Arizona and the Grand Canyon. Beautiful big paintings. Shame they don't allow photography, but understandable. The staff was also wonderful.
