This is a gem! Not only do they have an outstanding selection of art from various artists for sale, they also have a splendid gallery of art by nationally famous artists. All of this in a relaxing setting with music by local musicians (at times). It is worth a visit just for enjoyment, but also a great chance to buy... More

I really enjoyed my visit to the arts center. There were multiple exhibits, each one very strong and well hung. The gift shop was also worth a stop.

Be sure to check out the Tubac Center of the Arts. After wondering around town checking out all the wonderful galleries and shops we spent some time in the Tubac Center of the Arts. There were very few people there and that was a shame as the place has a much larger collection than we imagined. Some of the pieces... More

I walked through this building while attending the art festival. Great gift shop with helpful staff and pretty reasonable prices. It was a well-needed break from the sun and heat, and I bought a cute little trinket to take home with me.

The entire small town has artisan quality merchandise and nice little restaurants to sit outside and people watch. I bought several items and was so pleased with the quality. Allow a couple of hours at least to walk around the area and then see the Museum which takes at least another hour or two. Driving time is about 30 minutes... More

Definitely something to check out when visiting this historic settlement. The surrounding mountain ranges and natural beauty is inspiration to a number of artists residing in the area.

Don't take people who don't like to browse, to shop, to stroll. Our visit was a little rushed because many in the group were not interested at all in the Mexican arts and crafts, of which there were many. And we didn't get to Tubac until after 4, not a good plan as the shops mostly close at 5.

Currently there is a show of beautiful Navaho rugs. They look brand new but are all over 100 years old. Stunning is the word and with many well displayed in one room it is breath-taking. Worth a view or two!
