We went for a Day of the Dead exhibit and enjoyed the variety of other installations they had. Museum is easy to navigate, has relevant southwestern exhibits and is well hung for the most part. Easy to do in an hour or so.

It is difficult to find the UofA's Art Museum, and even harder to find a place to park near it. Stunning as it sounds, the powers that be at the University haven't included a parking area for visitors, and there are precious few signs to...More

The Museum of Art at the University of Arizona is small but surprisingly interesting with artifacts dating from the Roman Empire, paintings from the 15th century and an absorbing exhibition on light. A real joy!

This is a small but great museum on the campus of the University of Arizona. Lots of local artists with a huge display of pottery, and the history of native American all around Tucson.

My niece and I went to see the "Figures and Expressions in 20th Century America" exhibit (which is no longer there) and we weren't disappointed. It was fun to put our faces into a few of the paintings. We're leaving town but we'll definitely go...More

Small but surprising museum! Dali portraits of Old Testament figures are simple and powerful. The museum's core, though, is Fernando Gallego's alter pieces: astonishingly modern and emotional; could spend several hours just contemplating in one room.

The museum is not very large, but there is a lot of art packed into it. The Andy Warhol artwork was worth the visit. If you are in the area, I would suggest to anyone that they stop and check it out. It does not...More
