Phoenix New Times' Description

From humble beginnings, when the Dwight and Maie Bartlett Heard founded the museum in what was then a small Southwestern town, to the impressive world-class museum it is today, the Heard Museum has come a long way. The Heard opened in 1929 and houses internally recognized collections of Native American artifacts and artwork. You can find century-old Katchina dolls, archives of traditional baskets, paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and clothing all created by members of Native tribes throughout the country. Though the museum aims to educate about the arts, heritage and lives of all the Indigenous peoples of the Americas, the emphasis lies on the American Indian tribes of the Southwestern region. In addition of the high quality collections the Heard offers education programming and festivals. The museum has two locations, one in downtown Phoenix and second in north Scottsdale both of which feature a shop and cafe.

    Best of Phoenix 2011 Winner: Best Buried Indian Treasures Best secret! A few wrong turns, pressed buttons & you might end up down there, but don't expect to see anything good without a curator.
