Connecting visitors with their ideal travel experiences in Tucson and Southern Arizona.

Blending the traditional with the inventive, the museum presents original and traveling exhibitions with a focus on Art of the American West, Latin American Art, and Modern and Contemporary Art.

The historic block features five distinctive, historic properties that provide visitors with a unique look into Tucson’s past: the J. Knox Corbett House, La Casa Cordova, the Edward Nye Fish House (now part of the John K. Goodman Pavilion of Western Art), the Romero House, and the Stevens/ Duffield Houses.

During the Christmas holiday season, La Casa Cordova hosts El Nacimiento, an elaborate nativity scene that has been running since the 1970's. The Romeo house is home to a ceramics studio offering classes for adults.

Housed in the adobe walls of the Stevens home, enjoy one of Café a la C'Art's many famous desserts made with historic regional ingredients, and learn about the families that inhabited the home.
