Definitely take the various tours of this museum of Native American art and history. We had lunch in the restaurant and the food was excellent. The gift shop is for true collectors but the coffee shop has small souvenir type gifts.

Outstandingly museum. Worth going to see. The exhibits are exceptional. Very meaningful exhibits that depict the injustices that were done to the Indians. Would definitely go back. A must see.

So many things to learn, you could not begin to do it in one visit. There are interactive exhibits, and we have attended many cultural exhibits and performances. A must see for all Americans, not just those of us who live in Arizona.

The Heard Musuem housing an amazing number of artifacts in a very impressive facility. Unfortunately, I only had a little over an hour to race through the exhibits. I can't wait to return when I have much more time.

The standard, by which all Native American art museums are measured. The Heard has a world class selection of pottery, basketry and jewelry reflecting the artistry and diversity of Native American people.

Very, very well organized. Thus, easy to maximize the location's large background learning on things that people do not know as well as they think, IF at all. Many visual sights to compliment and amplify the good educational elements. A place to go with or...More
