“Western art gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This museum is loaded with top quality western art- Taos 7 - and sculptures by Russell and Remington.
There is a top quality guitar exhibit right now including an iPod to listen to music from these fabulous guitars - from early Spanish music up to the digital age!
Well worth at least 3 hours!
I live in Tucson and appreciate Western art.

“A fave.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you want to see some amazing Native American culture don't miss this place. One of the best collections in the world. You can't help but appreciate the culture, society and sophisticated work of the First Nation people groups. Very calming atmosphere with the subtle music in the background.

“Good mix of western art and Indian artifacts and history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

There is a wide variety of western art, paintings, sculptures, photographs. The exhibit and history of Indian tribes on the 2nd floor was very interesting and educational. Did not go to the children's area. We almost skipped the guitar exhibit but decided to just go through very quickly, so glad we did as we got to see Buddy Holly's guitar. The museum gift shop was very good I found several good children's books. We asked and they validated our parking ticket when we bought our admission tickets. The parking garage was very convenient, ample space, and good signage.

“Okay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

I'm not sure what I expected, but we weren't too thrilled. We went to the Guitar exhbit. I think we would have enjoyed it more if we splurged for the musical tour with IPOD. Since we didn't have one, the other's that did slowed our progress.
