Museums in Phoenix

Phoenix, the sixth largest city in the United States, has an exciting and expanding museum scene. In past recent months, the Valley of the Sun saw the opening of the Musical Instrument Musuem (the MIM), a welcome addition to the city's growing list of unique cultural institutions. Our number one pick is the Phoenix Art Museum, a cultural anchor on the corner of Central and McDowell near downtown Phoenix. The museums permanent collection contains work by Rembrandt and Frida Kahlo. Don't leave without checking out the modern art wing, which has become a visitor favorite.

For history buffs, the Arizona State Capitol Museum in central Phoenix is an overlooked gem, and the Pueblo Grande Museum and Cultural Park on Washington give visitors an enticing glimpse into prehistoric Hohokam culture. For kids and families, the Children's Museum of Phoenix and Arizona Science Center in downtown are a perfect way to spend the day, especially on hot summer days.
