This iconic contemporary art museum is located on 21-acres of local park in the heart of Scottsdale and showcases between nine and 12 exhibitions each year. Visitors who venture to this popular attraction will find some of the best examples of art, design and architecture in the Southwest.
Travelers agree the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is an ideal place to escape the city’s heat while taking in some fabulous pieces. But since the museum is relatively small, it’s good to check ahead to be sure it’s not between exhibits.
The museum is located at 7374 East 2nd Street in Scottsdale. It is open daily from noon until 5 pm., with extended hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Admission is $7 for adults and $5 or students. Admission is free after 5 pm on Thursdays.
