In addition to the permanent collection at Phoenix Art Museum, they are always hosting traveling exhibitions that cover a wide range of artistic tastes. Photography, surrealism, graphics, fashion, cityscapes, sculptures, ancient art, and highlights of specific artists may be on the museum schedule during any particular year.
The Arizona Costume Institute is a support organization for the Fashion Design Department at Phoenix Art Museum founded to collect and preserve garments and accessories of historic and aesthetic significance and promote fashion as art through educational programs and fundraising events.
Phoenix Art Museum Tip: One-hour tours are led by Museum-trained volunteers either once or twice per day. I prefer the Audioguide which is a self-guided tour. You can get information (in English and Spanish) about whichever exhibit interests you, and there are stops on the tour especially for kids.
