A lady on the Allegiant flight told us about this museum, so we went there and found it most interesting! Not only was it free, but it showcased Western and Native art in an amazing way! What a gift this family has given to the people of Arizona!

If you like Southwestern and Native American art you do not want to miss this gallery. Admission is free. Allow about an hour or more to browse the artwork. Be sure to read the many personal letters and notes from the artists to Mr. Basha attached to many pieces.

Even though the gallery is not overly large, there is much to see and appreciate! I spent most of my time here looking at the bronze sculptures and kachina dolls. Which means I'll need a second trip to check out all the paintings. An absolutely amazing collection. If you like Western art and Native American art, stop by. No admission... More

When you enter this Gallery it is free...yes free and is a large collection of Western and Native American art. Mr. Basha deserves a great thank you for investing in these pieces and his family also for showing these to the public. The location is good and the collection is comprehensive. Thanks.

This is the finest and largest collection of Western art that I have ever seen. Off the beaten path but not hard to find. After a visit you will surely be glad you had been there. Give yourself at least 2 hours time to see it all.
