NileGuide Expert tip:
The museum is surrounded by the El Presidio neighborhood and some of Tucson's oldest homes. Take time to explore this area on foot, if possible.
Spread across a complex of five historic adobe homes and a modern main building, the Tucson Museum of Art sits in the heart of downtown. The Plaza of Pioneers, which unites the complex, honors Tucson's early pioneers. The museum focuses on Western art. The Palice Pavilion focuses on pre-Columbian art from Central and South America. For visitors venturing into downtown Tucson, the Tucson Museum of Art is a must.
