Tucson Museum of Art
The Tucson Museum has moved from exhibiting mostly American Western art, as well as Latin American art, contemporary and modern art. The museum shop features works by some of Arizona's most talented artists. Children under 12 and members are admitted free of charge and it's free for all on the first Sunday of the month. If art is what intrigues you, this place is a must-visit.
A day at this Museum is just delightful. The gift shop alone is worth a trip. As is the Cafe, which has such good food, and such a nice staff, that you are made to feel so welcome that you do not want to leave after finishing the last crumb. The food is very fresh and delicious at this cafe, which has indoor and outdoor seating. The Museum of Art has many eager volunteers to answer every question you might have. The way the exhibits are divided into rooms, makes one feel very comfortable and never overwhelmed by it all. You just know that you will understand and enjoy what you are seeing. After 2 trips, we signed on as members, and in the last 6 months, we have been there about 6 times. A most enjoyable way to spend the day.
We visit the Tucson Museum of Art whenever we go to Tucson. On our last trip we were thrilled to discover just across the street a complex with 8 shops and and good restaurant. It is called Old Town Artisans. There is one of the best Native American shops there called La Zia. There is also a wonderful shop full of Mexican Culture called Toleca Toletilea. The Pot Shop is nice with all kinds of clay art and metal art.The customer service is lacking in the pot shop, some dark haired lady was more interested in her personal conversation with a co worker than she was in us, even though we had questions. So we didn't buy the pot, so what ! We had lunch is the restaurant and ate on the patio in the warm Tucson sun. The enchiladas are very good and so was the service. No visit to the Tucson Museum of Art is complete without a visit to Old Town Artisans.
The Art museum is on a real membership push, lately. There is at least one member of the Board that is buying memberships for anyone interested. The membership gets you into some receptions and early showings. Well worth the effort to seek out a director!
Went to the art museum with son on school field trip . Had a wonderful time , so much so that had to return with husband following weekend . Exhibits change every so often so that there is always something new to be seen . Once a month on a Sunday (?) admission is free so that those on a budget can enjoy it as well . Donations are appreciated as they help fund the arts education program they offer as well as helping secure quality exhibits . Gain cultural awareness with zero snootiness factor !

This world famous museum is rather a zoo displaying the creatures of the surrounding desert in their natural habitats. Located
