Outside and in, this museum is really getting to be wonderful. It's free one evening per week, so plan around that if you're short on funds. Don't miss Mexican and Southwest collections as well as a growing and impressive contemporary art collection

When I came to Phoenix in the early 1960s, there was barely and art museum here. Since its expansion and with donations from local collectors, it has slowly became a respectable art museum. They do have a very fine Asian collection and they host top-notch traveling exhibits. Be careful of the docents, though, they are not well trained on the art.
