    Temple of Music and Art

    Patrons of the arts, demanding a proper environment for classical concerts in Tucson, helped raise most of the money necessary to build this concert hall in 1927. Since reopening in 1990, the Temple has been the Tucson home of the Arizona Theatre Company, which manages the structure for the City of Tucson. The main building is home to a 600-seat theater. There is a small art gallery on the second floor; the south wing contains a nice cafe, with a cabaret theater right above it, while the north wing holds a gift shop offering theatrical and musical souvenirs. Free backstage tours are given every Saturday at 11:30am, October through April.
