Tucson Museum Of Art Reviews & Ratings
A gem of a place in downtown Tucson. They have expanded some galleries since I had been here several years ago. A great permanent collection of Southwestern art and Mexican folk art. Interesting shows rotate through the year. I love the Guggenheim-esque spiraling ramp that takes you down to the first and second levels. I’m sure it’s going to have some surprises in store when they finish redoing the courtyard.
The museum was under construction during our visit, but the areas that were still open were great. The gift shop though?! SO. HOT. I felt hot though the whole tour, but it was 104° outside and I just never seemed to cool down with all of the lights. There are some amazing works that you're going to want to spend a lot of time looking at. Like the piece in the second photo. Every inch, something new to see.
Nice building. Easy parking on street. My parking app didn't work with the meter so I used debit card. Even with construction related to expansion there is a lot to see. The docent are very cool. The docents don't just stand around. They are proactive!!
They are doing a lot of work and most of the museum is closed. What was open was really cool and unique. I wouldn't recommend this museum until they get up and open in 2020.
Ecclectic pieces well displayed on a downward spiral route that's easy on the feet. Lots of stuff to Google for more info. Rodin, Chagall, Monet and Cassatt to name a few. Worth the time and effort. Enjoy!
