Arts & Culture

Beat the heat by visiting one of the Valley's arts venues or an exhibit at a museum. From concerts to art exhibitions and theatrical performances, there is plenty to experience and see in the greater Phoenix area. The youngsters in your household will enjoy a visit to the downtown Children's Museum of Phoenix, Phoenix Art Museum's digital video exhibition, the new Butterfly Wonderland at Via de Ventura and the 101 in Scottsdale or the Musical Instrument Museum in north Phoenix.
