This Museum is truly amazing. There are so many things to see, the museum focusing on several subjects ranging from art to history.

We took part on the South Wing Overview guided tour which presented us contemporary paintings and modern photography too, then we were presented with various designs from fashion designers which was a delight to my wife, to say the least. :) Most part of the museum is under reconstruction, so we weren't able to see the Modern exhibition, unfortunately. This just means we will have to return to see the others one day.

Phoenix Travel guide

It can’t be said about Downtown Phoenix that is an easy place to get around as it is quite spread out and too hot but it is not usually very crowded except when World Series-winning Arizona Diamondbacks are playing. If you want to be where the main activity is centered go to Arizona Center mall, but it can’t be compared to the mega-malls to be found further north so if you need a wider [...]
