Native American culture and art at it's best. Artists that have items in the Smithsonian, local unheard off artists and everything in between. Take some time and talk to the docents you 'will walk in beauty' (Navajo saying).

This is a lovely place with many examples of artifacts from several different Native American groups. It's a beautiful place and nicely laid out. I would have preferred a little more explanation of how the objects would have been used and how they were made.

A friend invited me to go see the Frida Kahlo and Diego de Rivera exhibit. Although this museum is on the smallish-side, their selections are really good and the well-thought of placements of objet d'art are A-ok! I thoroughly enjoyed the Frida Kahlo and Diego...More

If you are interested in native American art and people this is definitely for you. So many beautiful pieces of art, from jewelry to pottery to art works, and much more. You will also learn the ways of the many tribes.

This museum that has been around for ages is still a safe bet for being impressed with the history of the Southwest. It's both, the permanent exhibit (e.g. the incredible Kachina collection) and the temporary exhibits of highest quality. Highly recommended!

The Heard Museum has many displays showing how the Native Americans had lived in this area of the country. There's a lot of respect and appreciation shown for the various tribes. The collection of Kachina dolls was really amazing
