A great Western art Museum, a couple of miles North of town. Strongly suggest a visit. The artwork and the statue pieces are well worth the visit as is the Gift shop.

There is an exhibit now at the Phippen called "Click: the West Through the Lens" If you want to see some beautiful photography with a nice cross section of styles be sure to see this one. Wildlife, nature and portraits. The Phippen Museum is open Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission prices... More

Interesting Western art with exhibitions by local, Arizona artists. Totally renovated with excellent exhibits and good narratives. Admission a bit pricey but well worth it.

The Phippen Museum recently added on a very large exhibit space, and what was on display was most impressive. You don't have to be a "cowboy and horse" fan to appreciate the art work. The smaller galleries had George Phippen's work and a recreation of his studio on display. They also have an impressive amount of bronze sculptures by Solon... More

"Excellent" was our opinion of this fine new building on a hilltop overlooking the granite dells. There are a number of exhibits well displayed on the first floor: fine art & sculpture, recreations of artists' studios, saddles, & related cowboy items. An exhibit of local horse paintings was amazingly high quality. The lower floor is currently mostly empty. We did... More

Not being familiar with this museum we decided to stop after visiting Watson Lake. For someone who likes Western Art and its development this museum is a must see. Part of the museum was under renovation so we weren't able to see everything the museum offers but it was still worthwhile. Our favorite part of the museum was the Ray... More

Wish the front desk told you the entire lower level is now empty and the special exhibit is not available so you have about 1 1/2 rooms of paintings to see and some rusted metal objects outdoor. Overpriced for the small collection. Paintings were good though.

This was a beautiful museum with so much beautiful western art. The outside area has many western sculpture pieces which were really nice and fun to take pictures by.
