Indian School exibit was superb and interactive. Inuit exibit was very interesting and the collection is massive. Loved the ivory, textiles, weapons, children's artifacts. Love the building...pottery collection comparable to the Arizona State Museum collection in Tucson. I would visit again. Rotating exibit was fair.

A group of convention spouses and guests went here as a part of a pre-booked outing.
Phoenix is so full of history and this museum is a nice place to study and appreciate our Native Americans. This is a great place to learn about native american culture and the different styles of clothing and jewelry they each invented. And how they farmed the land and raised their children. They have many different tribal styles of jewelry and turquoise and hand crafted baskets, pottery, etc. And a great display of Kachina dolls. And the facility is just beautiful and they have a nice gift shop with a lot of reasonable priced jewelry and souvenir items and then some very expensive over the top items. Glad we went.

A nice museum that will tell you a lot about the Nations from that part of the country. An important collection of Kasina dolls, very interesting

This is simply the best museum of Native American art, with a Southwest emphasis, in the world. Navajo, Hopi, Apache and many other tribes are well represented. The Hopi Kachina and Navajo rug collections are without peer, but the pottery and jewelry from the Pueblo Indians are also outstanding, as is the basketry of many tribes. It's all presented in the Native American way, where past and future are juxtaposed and seen as parts of the same, continuing, story. This is not an endless place like the Louvre, it is easily seen and enjoyed by all age groups. Recommended to every visitor to Phoenix, at least once. Fees are reasonable.
