This museum, near the northwest corner of the University of Arizona campus, has an academic feel... and even, sometimes, a musty smell. It also has some fabulous exhibitions of lesser-known artists, as well as less-recognized works by well-recognized artists.

If you love art, this is a great Tucson destination!

Though small, the displays were informative, diverse and well worth contemplating. The "Verboten" exhibit was most interesting, since it represents the strength and freedom of expression artists still practice today. Upstairs The Samuel H. Kress Collection is an incredible 14th-19th century display of European Art...fit to reside in Venice!! You even get to meet up with a bronze hand cast by Picasso himself; almost seemingly giving you a "High Five" as you walk by! Using your tourist passport gets you in 2 for 1.

Head upstairs first! They have a lovely collection worth a little walk from a parking garage near the U of A campus

This is a relatively small museum, but had wonderful representation of famous artists. It was very enjoyable and could be seen in an hour or two.

Serene atmosphere and very cozy. Students of all ages are free. A hidden jewel of the U of A. The museum is adjacent to the Marroney Theater on campus. Visited the Museum of Art with my daughter. Took joy in the artwork. Memorable experience. Will return.
