Museums and Galleries 

Chandler culture is enhanced by its museums, public and private art galleries, and its many exhibits of publicly funded works of art.

Chandler Museum

Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1 - 5 p.m.

The Chandler Museum is a cultural destination unlike any other with engaging, community-focused programs and forums, as well as world-class traveling exhibits.

The new museum is a 10,000-square-foot facility just north of the historic McCullough-Price house with nearly 13,000 square feet of outdoor spaces, including a 10,000 square-foot courtyard that ties the two buildings together and provides a shaded gathering place for visitors and outdoor programming.

Renovations to the historic house created a formal state-of-the-art research and archive site for the Museum while maintaining its status on the National Register of Historic Places. Together, the project establishes a City of Chandler iconic cultural facility with easy to access to the 101 and 202 freeways, in close proximity to vast shopping and dining options, and a growing area that is being developed for residents and tourism.
