Currently free on the first Friday of each month. The Heard museum contains an eclectic collection of art and culture and history. The common thread throughout the museum is that these things are all related to the native people of Arizona. I enjoyed the art. The Indian School exhibit is both informative and sobering -- highlighting life in the Indian boarding schools to which the Federal government sent native children.
