Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West
Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, which opened in January 2015, is located in Old Town on the former site of the Loloma Transit Station. In accordance with the city’s nickname, “The West’s Most Western Town,” the museum is dedicated to the history, culture, and art of the West. The strikingly contemporary two-story building houses eight galleries, a multimedia theater, and a sculpture courtyard. The space hosts exhibitions of paintings, bronzes, photography, and historic cowboy gear. Don’t miss Heritage Hall, which displays photographs of famous Westerners including Billy the Kid and Bill Gates.
