Museums and exhibitions in Arizona
You've come to Arizona for the outdoors—the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Sedona's red rocks—but make time for air-conditioned curated culture, too. From big-city grand to small-town funky, there are museums and exhibits somewhere for everybody in the family as you travel around Arizona.

Bang Some Gongs at MIM

Large arrow left

Don a headset, approach an exhibit, and wirelessly listen to African thumb piano or Mongolian throat singing at the vast Musical Instrument Museum. Besides browsing some 15,000 artifacts that represent different musical genres, visitors can catch a concert, take a drumming class, or recharge at the café, which serves global fare made from local products.
