A gem in the Prescott area art world. If interested in top notch western art from cowboys to landscapes go visit. Main hall changes the theme of the exhibits periodically so check website.

The Phippen Museum is a terrific discovery hidden on 89 North just outside of Prescott. The journey through the beautifully displayed Western and Indian artwork is worth an hour or so of any visitor’s time.

We thoroughly enjoyed spending a couple of hours at this museum, which focuses on western art. Both the permanent and temporary exhibits are excellent. There are a couple of replica studios and a gallery with historic artifacts and a chuckwagon. Don't miss the Chief Joseph...More

Well-organized displays in museum that is a nice size and fresh in appearance. Many fine examples of cowboy saddles, guns and tools are mixed into rooms displaying realistic paintings of old West life. We are happy to have altered our drive to stop here.

A lovely gem of an art museum on the fringes of Prescott in the scenic Granite Dells. Exhibits change often throughout the year. Frequent Saturday lectures, children's programs, and dinner events also.

The permanent exhibits seem to focus a lot on the Cowboy Artists of America founders and artists who are/were in the Prescott area - and they are worth seeing. Beautiful sculptures, paintings, and some historical displays as well (we particularly enjoyed seeing the cowgirl/rodeo girl...More

Enjoyed this Western museum. Wonderful Paintings, bronze statues and rotating exhibits that highlight western life. Interesting collection of cowboy memorabilia with history of famous cowboys. Reasonably priced and pleasant staff that allow you to move at own pace to enjoy the artwork. Worth the time!

I am really not one for museums and agreed to go to Phippen because the other three adults wanted to go. I was pleasantly surprised and truly enjoyed the art. It is a Western art museum. The paintings and sculptures are impressive. Worth the visit.
