Though it is tempting to lounge outside and soak up some of the sun's rays in sunny Phoenix (with SPF, of course!), while you're here, there are also plenty of places where you can soak up some culture. Whether you prefer art, automobiles, science, history or are searching for somewhere to take the kids, the metro Phoenix area has many destinations. In fact, some of the largest museums in the Southwest are located right here in town.
It doesn't matter whether you are a view-works-from-afar type or prefer hands-on, interactive exhibits, there is a locale for every preference.
