The University of Arizona is practically its own city.

With over 42 thousand students bustling about, this place is BIG. Once you see how expansive this school is, it should come as no surprise that it has it’s own art museum.

While everything else about this university is gargantuan, the museum itself is actually quite small, housing only about 6,000 paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. But worry not, for this museum is part of “the Museum Neighborhood,” which is a cluster of four. So if there is not enough in this institution to satisfy your art craving, there are three within walking distance for you to check out!

Founded in 1924, this museum has an emphasis on European and American fine art from Renaissance to the present. When wandering through the halls, you'll find work from artists ranging from Rembrandt to Warhol, which in my opinion makes this museum worth a visit based on those two artists alone.

If you are a student or faculty admission is free and if not, you can get in for only $5. Pretty much a steal to be able to see some of the most iconic artist’s work.
