    Best museum in Arizona. Great contemporary exhibits. Open Tuesday - Saturday. Closed Sunday & Monday. Admission is always free. If you get to meet Deborah, she's incredible and she knows everything.

    I love going here because it is free and they have amazing art work to look at. The building is also beautiful to walk around in. Great place to go for an afternoon if you love art.

    Having a friend who works here definitely bring me here more often, and I definitely suggest multiple visits because it has more to offer than your initial visit might suggest.

    Its free! Great architecture outside the building, and wonderful interior design work inside the building. Lots of exhibitions from across the world from many artists. Great pieces from students also.

    This is a pretty cool place to go to pass some time and view some art exhibitions. If you're a student you should check it out at least once- it's free! So come and go as you please.

    Admission is free and they have amazing rotating contemporary art exhibitions – they change every three months or so. Be aware that you’ll need to check bags so, if possible, travel light.

    I love going here! It's free and so quiet, not to mention full of some very interesting pieces. Don't listen to that previous comment about it being disappointing; its art, enjoy it and have fun!

    Aside from the refreshing architecture of the building, a couple neat paintings and sculptures, as well as the free admission, this place is not worth your time. It's kind of disappointing.
