A great medium sized museum with an emphasis on local and regional art that is well interpreted. Plus there are excellent special exhibits. For a few more days there is a terrific exhibit of wearable art.

Chihuly was my favorite, but lots of painting and Southwestern art. Plan at least an hour or two. Some modern art as well.

This is my home town art museum. It amazes me how varied and famous the visiting collections are. Their Chihuly chandeliers are gorgeous. The western and native art permanent collections are small but interesting. If you have a chance to see one of their plays,...More
