My wife and I have made several visits here. I think they have one of the best permanent collections of any museum, particularly the European Renaissance section. Excellent contemporary art also.There is a wonderfully innovative "Firefly" exhibit in which you enter a darkened room that is illuminated by hundreds of twinkling lights--hence the name. There are other contemporary works that are impressive also. Special exhibitions recently have included Contemporary Mexican Art and Western Art, both of which we toured and found to be outstanding. We recently became members of this museum to encourage us to drive up from Tucson more often. An added bonus: an excellent restaurant (Note: I recently discovered that a new catering company has assumed management, and have not tried the new fare).

I have seen a lot of great artists exibiting here. Check the trafic before you aproach the venue. Sometimes is hard to find a parking also.

I always like to visit the Phoenix Art Museum whenever I can, how could anyone not love a museum? I recently viewed the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit always fascinating.

Ideal spot for group outing since they have an excellent permanent collection with special temporary exhibitions of interest for more local and southwests interests. One highlight are the Thorne Rooms which are miniatures at their best! Lunch at the Palette cafe is a delight with a regional flair that is sure to please.
