This building has a lot of beautiful, almost breathtaking space, but a very limited collection of art--great potential for added collections. After browsing the Google images on line, though (as well as some of the other reviews on this website), it appears as if there...More

A gem of the city, the Phoenix Art Museum is truly a place to visit. With bilingual Spanish/English labels the art work descriptions are clear and easy to understand. Programming for adults and children abound.

Interesting to see the armor and art of the period. Nice museum, very well lit. There were plenty of other exhibits to see as well as the special exhibits.

Many amazing art exhibits, for the entire family. There is even a light exhibit, that you can get lost in. Seriously, wonder around and get lost. You just never know, what is around the corner. Go. Check it out.

I have attended many special events through the years at the Phoenix Art Museum. But I really enjoy the special exhibits there. I discover all types of artists (e.g. Sheila Pepe) whom I never would have known about. The staff is very friendly as well.

Its about 15-20 minutes... less if you go outside of rush hour :) The Museum is along the light rail also a great option.
