Welcome to Phoenix's Heard Museum, the local art and culture museum that holds exhibits devoted to Native American Civilizations and Southwest Art. This museum was first founded in 1929 and is recognized internationally for the 'quality of its collection, world-class exhibits, educational programming, and unmatched festivals'.

Dedicated to the advancement of American Indian Art, Heard truly sets the standard for American Indian art collaborations and exhibitions. While here your group will be able to see first-hand some of this art, whether in the galleries or with a live performance. There are 12 exhibition galleries within, including the Jacobson Gallery, Kitchel Gallery, Freeman Gallery, and much more. See signature exhibits such as HOME: Native People in the Southwest as you explore, then opt-in for a free guided public tour or special K-12 School Tour.

Be sure to save plenty of time to roam the outdoor sculpture gardens, grab a bite to eat at the onsite Courtyard Cafe (catering for groups up to 150 available), and visit the expansive gift shop/trading post onsite.
