Heard Museum

The Heard Museum was founded in 1929. The Museum houses one of the finest collections of Native American artifacts and art. The collection focuses on the cultures of the Southwest, and contains 35,000+ artifacts. Some of the galleries have hands on activities that permit visitors to learn and explore.

In 1999 a 50,000 ft. expansion opened. The newer addition houses various galleries, a cafe, an artists studio, education pavilion, gift shop, and bookstore.

Visitors will be pleased to see one of the world's largest collections of Katsinna or Kachina Dolls, sculptures, and Indian artifacts. The collection includes a number of Kachinas from the Barry M. Goldwater collection. Please note the exhibits change on a regular basis. On occasion, the museum hosts special events, such as an Annual Hoop Dance Festival, Indian Fair, and more.

The museum has a library and photo archives that are open to visitors, researchers, and students.

Visitors can purchase rugs, textiles, pottery, jewelry, books, etc.
