  • My favorite part was walking through the tiny homes. Getting to see creative ideas of making a bedroom, living room and dining room. This place is big so wear something comfortable to walk around in. Tickets were $25 per person which isn't bad at all. Overall it was Fun!
  • My friend and I came to have lunch at the museum. We didn't visit the exhibits. But parking was free and easy and the museum campus was interesting and nicely laid out with different focus areas. We had lunch outside on the patio of Palette, the restaurant at the Phoenix Art Museum. The food and beverages were wonderful. I had the quesidilla with a side of their beautiful fries and my friend had the grilled cheese. The adult beverages were refreshingly cool and perfectly made; tasty too. We were both very happy with our choices. After we ordered, the food came promptly. Plus each of the different servers we chatted with were super friendly and helpful. We'll be back definitely and will bring more friends. Also they had smaller black birds outside (I have no idea what kind). But they didn't bother diners and added to the charm as they hopped on the grass next to the patio. They were super cute. I highly recommend Palette. Sit outside under the umbrellas or in the shade under the building overhang.
