This is a must for any art lover visiting Scottsdale! The museum is quite small, but the art is out of this world and definitely worth a visit. They also have a James Turrell here, so I would recommend trying to come around sunrise/sunset.

We attended a small band concert. The seats are quite steeply raked so the sight lines and acoustics seem to be good from everywhere

If you like a small theater setting and great seats this is the place to see great performances. The prices for the performances are reasonable.
