Phoenix Art Museum has got it going on!

Last weekend I took a quick get-away weekend vacation to Phoenix, Arizona. I know what you’re thinking, Phoenix  of all places?! Well, let me tell you, I would do it again. And a big reason for that is the Phoenix Art Museum! Coming from the Bay Area, I would put the Phoenix Art Museum right up there with SFMOMA and the de Young museum!

There were exhibits that anyone could enjoy, impressionist oil paintings, classic American Art, fashion, photography, they have it all! The place is huge! I must have spent three to four hours going through everything. I have to say I really enjoyed the Western American and the Modern collections. And when you’re read to sit down and take a break, you can grab a delicious beer, cocktail, or bite to eat at their cafe.

The price is really reasonable, regular adult tickets being $15, with discounts for students, seniors, kids, etc. An easy price to pay for an afternoon of culture and a mind-expanding experience over paying $12 to see a movie.

If you’re ever even near Phoenix, you have got to check this place out. There’s always something new going on and I’m sure you won’t be sorry!
