I had read about the Heard in books and really wanted to go here. Little did I know, we were there during a big Native American art festival which turned out to be so much fun. We had limited time so we took the tour of the highlights of the Heard, which is no charge. This is a great museum, and we learned so much in just an hour and covered most of the museum. I would kind of wander off and look in other galleries and rooms to check them out when the guide was talking because the place was so big and interesting and I wanted to see it all! After the tour, we walked around a bit on our own because I really wanted to see the display of Kachina dolls. We found it and they are really incredible. I've never seen so many in one place. Since the art festival was going on, we walked around there for a bit. Every piece of Native American art you can imagine is there for sale. We didn't buy anything, it's all authentic and handcrafted, so it's not cheap, but well worth your money if you do decide to buy something. They also had food. We had fry bread with honey and sugar, which was delicious. Even without the festival, this is a must see when in Phoenix and especially if you are interested in Native American art and culture.
