Just a hyped up tourist shop in buildings that are more interesting than the items they sell.

Unfortunately owners have missed a huge opportunity to have something unique in these historic... read more

We had a few hours to kill so we decided to visit. Having lived in Arizona much of my life I found most of the items we looked at the same as other places. I was pleasantly surprised to find some extremely unique items though....More

Unfortunately owners have missed a huge opportunity to have something unique in these historic buildings. Folks leaving the Art Museum easily stroll over to the shops expecting authentic items in a welcoming atmosphere. Instead the linked shops are offering "same old stuff" but very overpriced!...More

A sweet collection of artful, creative shops in what they claim is the oldest building that's been continually occupied in AZ. I especially enjoyed Barrio Bella, which has upcycled and new clothing that is unique. Cool jewelry, too. Reasonable prices, yay!!!

We have stopped by the Old Town Artisans each time we are in Tucson. The art is great. The atmosphere is wonderful. The people are very friendly. A cold beverage or bite to eat is delicious. Highly recommend stopping by and browsing a bit.

We explored the many interconnected little shops in the Old Town Artisans area hoping to find something that would interest us. We generally find unusual things in complexes such as this where independent artisans produce their products and we are willing to pay for their...More

We stopped by Old Town Artisans because it was listed in one of the tour guide books. According to one of the shop owners it used to be the center of Tucson. But now most of the area around this is now housing and businesses....More

We had not been here for over five years, and things have changed. Before, there was so much Southwestern Art by local artists here. I don't know where all that went. We used to marvel at the pottery, the paintings and the weavings. Now, it...More
