Phoenix Art Museum
Lonely Planet review for Phoenix Art Museum
The Phoenix Art Museum is Arizona's premier repository of fine art. Galleries include works by Claude Monet, Diego Rivera and Georgia O'Keeffe. The striking landscapes in the Western American gallery will get you in the mind-set for adventure. Take kids to the ingeniously crafted miniature period rooms in the Thorne Rooms, borrow a family audio guide or a KidPack, or visit the PhxArtKids Gallery (see www.phxartkids.org).
Grown-ups might want to join the free guided tours at noon, 1pm and 2pm. The museum's contemporary Arcadia Farms Café is a great place to grab a meal, and it's not only for museum-goers.
