At the Phoenix Children’s Museum, the first Friday night of each month is a major hit among people of the area. Kids can run around, play and learn for free.

Frank Lloyd Wright Home
The son and daughter-in-law of 20th century architect Frank Lloyd Wright, David and Gladys Wright, have made a valiant effort to preserve the 1952 spiral design home that Wright built. In recent news, investors have been trying to knock down this historical gem, but many are trying to make sure this doesn’t happen. The home belonged to Anne Wright-Levi, the great-granddaughter of the famed architect, and her two sisters, but the three sought a buyer that would preserve the historical significance. If the home becomes listed as a national historic home, it could be saved.

"If we succeed this time in rescuing this building," Alison King, co-founder of Modern Phoenix told the Phoenix News Times. "It could be the great, galvanizing event that gets people to consider that we do have some significant architecture here. Architecture worth preserving."
