    Went here for a class assignment. It was unlike any other museum I've been in before. Located just down the street from Downtown Phoenix campus if you're looking for something to do in the afternoon.

    There is so much to see, learn and enjoy. Plan to spend at least four hours, and it is better to book in advance.

    Heard is actually a great place to attend lectures or special events. An intimate venue in the round. A fantastic bonus to all the art and exhibitions for which the museum is known.

    The museum has more art pieces of Native American culture and history than I would have thought of it. The best way to learn more about the culture is to attend a tour within the museum.
