This museum was one of our favourite. They have 2 guided tours which were well done and gave a good overview of the place. So much to see and learn. You won’t be disappointed

An unexpected gem containing finds - clay pots, jewelry and clothing. Many rooms to wander and take in history. Free Tours with admission. AAA discount. Quiet and reflective outside areas. Take the light rail using station across the street, Encanto and central

A great exhibit of one of the great modern Native artists. That's what brought me to the Heard, but the rest of the museum kept me there for hours. The boarding school exhibits were educational and emotional. Time well spent. Cannon exhibit will be there...More
