We visited during the Native American craft fair, March 3 and 4. This is the premier native American craft fair in the USA. There are more arts and crafts than can be viewed in only two days. The vendors are extremely friendly. There was entertainment all during the fair. There was delicious food available. The Phoenix Metro light rail stops... More

I should qualify my review by saying that this may have been the first American Indian museum I've ever been to, so I don't have anything to compare it to other than exhibits at natural history museums. I thought it was a very manageable size and well laid out. The exhibits were displayed attractively and there was just the right... More

The museum is full of artwork by the original Native people of the Americas. Artwork, culture and a rich history is very well covered, as you walk through the Museum.

This museum provided information about the Indian tribes in the area. It was painful to watch the movie about how they were forced off of their land and also forcibly civilized. You can see lots of objects they make, pottery, jewelry etc.

We went to the Heard Museum today and saw the current exhibits. While we were there a Docent-led tour caught up with us, so we tagged along and learned even more.

Good place to learn Southwest American Indian art and history. Do not expect to see Monet here. If you have tribal identification bring it for free admission. Plan to spend few hours. The on site cafe has interesting menu.

The museum's collection of south west US aboriginal nations is very comprehensive and well presented. They have an interesting section of Navajo weaving which we were guided through by a visiting expert from northeast AZ. The guided tour is very helpful, great gift ship and lovely restaurant.
