Western Spirit: Scottsdale's Museum of the West reviews
Loved this place. Not so huge you cannot see it all but some really interesting exhibits! The Hopi pottery is beautiful. They have a really fun wall and floor painting you can take your own picture looking like you are getting ready to ride a horse. There are some really great collections that are on loan from different individuals including Barry Goldwater. Lots of neat old posters around if you have ever watched a western movie of cartoon!
Fascinating collections of art from paintings to drawings to sculptures. Also historical items such as saddles, chaps, guns, etc. We took a tour with the docent who provided additional insights that we would not have gained if we'd just walked around on our own. We were lucky enough to be there on the last day of the excellent Will James exhibition, a "cowboy" illustrator who also wrote some children's books of his own. The museum is light and airy inside, and has a really nice ambiance. There's a small sculpture garden in an internal courtyard that is well worth a visit, it's like a little biosphere all of its own and the Dave McGary statue there is amazing. (There's another one outside.) Highly recommended if you are at all interested in knowing a little about the art and history of the West.
