Phoenix’ Heard Museum is one of the most visited institutions dedicated to American Indian art in the country and around the world. The museum was founded in 1929, and celebrates both artifacts spanning centuries and contemporary work from Native American artists. Selections from the museum’s permanent selection take the stage alongside rotating exhibitions featuring diverse traveling work.

An on-site amphitheater hosts musicians, dancers and other performers, while an indoor auditorium invites lecturers, panelists, and filmmakers to present their work throughout the year. The Heard is a venue for American Indian events, markets, festivals and gatherings, many of which are open to the public.

The Nichols Sculpture Garden, bookstore, gift shop and coffee bar give you plenty more to do once you’ve toured the galleries. The Phoenix Art Museum is a short walk away, meaning you can easily incorporate a museum day into your Phoenix itinerary. The Heard is open every day except Monday and free guided tours are available on the spot.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Arizona!

Currently free on the first Friday of each month. The Heard museum contains an eclectic collection of art and culture and history. The common thread throughout the museum is that these things are all related to the native people of Arizona. I enjoyed the art. The Indian School exhibit is both informative and sobering -- highlighting life in the Indian boarding schools to which the Federal government sent native children.
