I did not have high expectations but left astonished. I don't think there is another museum that can counter this ones exhibits and artifacts. If you would like to dive head first into one of the best museums regarding Native American History and Culture this is a must see. If visiting in the future I would definitely visit again.

Amazing to see what people made with their hands, stones, shells, grasses and wood. At the time I visited, the museum had an exhibit on the life and works of Georgia O'Keefe one of my favorite artists.

I had seen the Native American museum in Washington ,DC and can honestly say that the Heard Museum was much better and much more informative!The tribes were depicted individually with their dress and history along with cultural information and their native crafts. There was also some videos and some interactive crafts so children could learn how some of the crafts... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful food at The Heard Museum cafe. My daughter and I were starving after our morning at the museum and we decided to try the cafe. What a delight.

We visited the Heard for the first time around the holidays when it was hosting the Christmas Ornament sale. The ornaments are all hand made by natives from various tribes, were of good quality and were quite affordable. The next time tht we visited was in April 2015 and we actually toured the museum and found it very interesting. One... More

This is the best Native American Indian museum I have had the pleasure of visiting. There were so many interesting artifacts, educational information and terrific tour guides. My husband and four children (ages 15 -22) enjoyed the museum immensely. The best part of the museum was the ancient art and the modern art done by Native Americans. Truly a must... More
