We went to see a photography exhibit but thoroughly enjoyed the western art section too. If you are looking for things to do outside of the downtown shopping area, this is a great stop. In addition, you get to see some beautiful scenery across the street.

This modest museum is organized around Geo. Phippen, the founder of the Cowboy Artists Assn-a group of very talented painters and sculptors. But little in the way of their pics and art is present here. Phippen, however, is well-represented.

I knew the Phippen was special; I had visited it years ago on my birthday in 2011. In the interim years, I drove by it often, thinking I needed to stop again. I'm very glad I did. The current exhibit is on the museum namesake, George Phippen. He would have been 100 years old this year if he had lived,... More

The Phippen is a must do when you visit Prescott. From here you get the most awesome views of the dells and surrounding area. Inside you learn about the history of the area though the eyes of the world's best cowboy artists. The museum also hosts some really fun events with music, speakers, and art all related to the West.... More

We went to a program on Pioneering Women in Arizona. It was a very good program with interesting new content I hadn't heard before.I was also impressed with the quality of the museum itself. The facility is very very nice and the exhibitions are terrific.

My art style has always tended to modern art or native American. The museum made me appreciate the art of the western cowboy. At home we own art no one pays attention to. I told my wife our guests would actually look at this art if we owned it. Cowboys, horses, wide open spaces, cows being herded down dusty canyons.... More

When you come to Prescott - btw it's pronounced "PressKit" by the real locals. We found that out when we were at the admission desk. For those who want to view actual items from the area during it's wild and woolly days, be prepared to view some items from the 18th Century, real items, not representations. The artworks are ones...

Great facility for an event. You should check them out. The gift store is so cute and you can really see some great art and sculptures from the Southwest.
