The Heard Museum is absolutely unmissable for anyone who wants to know more about the art and culture of the American Indians of the Southwest. The museum is open 7 days per week and has so much to see and do that you might need a full day to explore everything. Inside the Heard Museum there are exhibitions of American Indian art, photos, videos and stories which are designed to be inspirational and thought provoking.
In addition to the exhibitions, you might also want to take a look at the Art Fence. This is an installation that is based on an ocotillo fence and mixes contemporary touches with the traditional. The Heard Museum also has the “Fear of a Red Planet” mural that takes you back through history, showing scenes of different events that have affected the lives of American Indians. The museum is also home to a huge collection of Katsina dolls and if you like the look of them you can buy your own from the gift shop and learn how they are carved.
Children will love the galleries and the interactive activities where they can make their own items including bandolier bags and paper flowers. Once they have finished their creations they can take them back home to show off to friends and family. If you would like to purchase a gift, simply go the Heard Museum Shop which is packed full of American Indian-inspired items. The Courtyard Cafe is the perfect place to stop off for something to eat and drink before you find out even more about American Indians in this fascinating museum.
