“the largest of its kind outside of Japan”
This free and open to the public museum offers an introduction to the fascinating world of the samurai while presenting an intimate viewing experience of their spectacular armor and accoutrements. One section within the exhibition highlights helmets from around the world. Admission is free. The traveling exhibitions of The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection have showcased a variety of works from the family’s collection, which has been built over a span of twenty five years. One hundred and forty pieces from the collection, including suits of armor, helmets, masks, and weaponry are currently on display at the Phoenix Art Museum through July 16, 2017.
This is place is mind blowing. The exhibition is all year round, free, not huge but it will blow your socks off.
Every armor, helmet, etc are powerful, delicate, beautiful and threatening. A MUST see.
Doesn't take long but is visually fulfilling for days.
And they have a free parking for visitors at the bottom of the building.
