Seven Favorite Museums in Metro Phoenix

International Museum Day is right around the corner and a handful of museums in Phoenix have big plans. But the designated day has less to do with parties and deals and more to do with awareness -- there are dozens of museums in the metro Phoenix area that host artwork by locally and internationally acclaimed artists in countless forms of media from all decades.

Here are seven of our favorite museums in town that are perfect for an inspiring day off, a first date, a quiet evening, a stop during First Friday, or a Mother's Day experience -- you don't need an excuse. Get out there.
