Great opportunity to see different native american displays.. It features different artifacts from many different tribes. It specializes in the Southwest, but has exhibits that cover tribes from all over the north American area. Rich exposure to art and history.

View artifacts of the Navajo and Hopi nations as well as contemporary jewelry, pottery, blankets, etc. Be prepared to be awed by the Heard's remarkable collection of Kachina dolls. Stop by the Heard Museum Shop and take one home!

Large collection of Native American art and life. Very good on site café with southeastern food. Most interesting information was on how the US government intended to take the Indian out of native Americas through government run schools.
