The Heard Museum - the Heard Museum of Native Cultures and Art - is a museum located in Arizona, USA. The main Heard Museum is located on Central Avenue in Phoenix and there are now two branches of the Museum: the Heard Museum North Scottsdale in Scottsdale in the North Valley and the Heard Museum West in Surprise in the West Valley.
The overall mission of the Heard Museum is to educate the public about the heritage and the living cultures and arts of Native peoples, with emphasis on the peoples of the Southwest. The Heard Museum is not a history museum. It is a living museum featuring both artifacts and contemporary art of Native cultures. The Heard Museum has been designated as a Phoenix Point of Pride.
