Currently, at the museum is the Gianfranco Ferre "White Shirt" exhibition and it is a must see. This is the only museum in North America where you can view these extraordinary white shirts. Men will also enjoy this stunning display. The exhibition ends in March....More

Bring kids and adults here for visual and tactile experience of art. We enjoyed the kids area as much as the rest of the museum.

I work closeby so on a regularly I just enjoy spending a brief time there just to wind down at the end of a crazy day. A nice mix of medium and they are constantly bringing in new exhibits. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a great art gallery that contains great examples of Arizona art, along with a number of displays of masters and European art. Allow a minimum of 2 hours.

Nice selection of art and definitely something for everyone. For me every visit has to include the rooms with miniature furniture. The details are great.

I visited the Phx Art Museum for a college art history class. I'm from the LA area originally and am used to museums like the Getty - which is both huge and free! Many other museums kind of pale in comparison, but I was impressed...More

Its about 15-20 minutes... less if you go outside of rush hour :) The Museum is along the light rail also a great option.
