We went during the Andy Warhol exhibit and I was very pleased. The atmosphere is open and relaxing, allowing you to open your mind and take your time. I would definitely go again when in the area and have recommended it to many others. We had a small bite and a glass of wine in the café which also was... More

We went to the museum for the Da Vinci Leicester Codex exhibition which was very well displayed with informative signs and related more modern art work. We also viewed the extensive Warhol exhibition and the contemporary art galleries, which were varied and spacious and had informative labelling. The courtyard restaurant was a pleasant break. Well worth a visit.

Don't miss the Phoenix Art Museum! The museum has a wide variety of art, something for everyone's tastes. The contemporary pieces are really cool. Don't miss the light room (can't remember the name) and the video art of a tree. Warhol exhibit up right now is great.

Easy to get around, beautiful sculpture garden (modern art). Good guide maps and Curtis and Western art exhibits. Well curated exhibits. We have been there many times. Plenty of free parking.

I’m an artist in a small town so I’m art starved. Was so impressed with the caliber of art here. Two Monets, Pisarro, 3 Bierstadts, and my favorite, Moran. Oh my! There were great classical portraits by American artists that will let their subjects live forever. Compliments for letting me get reading glass close so I could study the brushstokes... More

We went on Wednesday evening and it was free! Our hotel navigator told us about it. The Firefly room was a highlight! Great museum.

I was interested in Western art: Remington, etc.and was not disappointed. There is also a wide range of art on display, set out so one can edicts oneself. Well worth a visit.

We went to see the Andy Warhol exhibit specifically, but caught up in ALL the exhibits they had there. This is a large museum with artwork strategically and artistically displayed for the best advantage to the art. The space helps the art speak to its audience. In addition to the famous Warhol pieces, the Museum also had a Leonardo da... More
