AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Heard is Arizona’s most famous museum. The traditional and contemporary art on display provides insight into the culture of Native American tribes indigenous to Arizona and the Colorado Plateau. The upstairs exhibit on Indian boarding schools is haunting and well-curated. You can take a self-guided tour of the museum any time, while guided tours are offered daily at noon, 2PM and 3PM. On a practical note: If you’re into meaningful souvenirs, the Heard Museum Shop is one of best places in Phoenix to buy authentic American Indian jewelry, pottery, paintings, sculpture and weavings

There is a moving exhibit about the displacement of the American Indians. I truly enjoyed my visit. Beautiful building. Interesting children's section too....   Read More
