This incredible collection of Chinese artwork is a must see on your next visit to AZ. Newly named for the Papp Family, it is deserving of a leisurely walk through. Be sure to visit the museum to pick up memories to take home with you.

I took my mother and two teenagers to this museum. It was a pleasant museum,but nothing really spectacular. I especially enjoyed the miniatures exhibit and the teenagers enjoyed the fireflies exhibit.

They must have been pouring concrete for a long time to construct this large, somewhat empty feeling facility. It is serviceable enough, but has kind of a lonely vibe. Not really quite sure why. Their restaurant, Patina, has the ability to shine. The food is...More
