After breakfast I visited the Phoenix Museum of Art. I was impressed by the size of its collection and the interesting mix of modern and classical art. In fact I was there for over three hours and didn't come close to seeing it all. I'll have to go back.
I took two Docent-led tours while I was there. One tour focused on the museum's collection of modern and installation art and the other featured three favorite parts of the museum selected by the Docent.
I always enjoy Docent led tours. First off, I learn a lot more about the art than I ever would just walking around. Secondly, Docents are always interesting people and I find it fascinating just to hear what they have to say.
The Phoenix Museum of Art also has a unique collection of miniature rooms -- something like elaborate rooms in a doll's house perfectly realized. So cute!
