Review for Heard Museum, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This nonprofit is the only Museum dedicated to the art, culture, and history of Native Americans in the Southwest. Approximately 1/3 of the Museum is dedicated to the art, culture, and art of the Native Americans of the Southwest. The balance of the Museum's space id dedicated gallery space for the showing of the past and current art of Native Americans throughout the U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii. It is the only in the U.S. that dedicates gallery space for these artists. Additionally there is a strong component of the Museum's mission to educate visitors as well as school children who come as part of their school curriculum. The Museum is a very popular field trip for young children as well as primary school up and through college. I personally guide many school groups throughout the year as well as adults both as part of public tours and specific private adult tours that arrange for a guide through the Museum's scheduler. European tourists to the U.S. are frequent and very interested in this part of our history.

Role:  Volunteer & I guide tours as described above.
