HEARD MUSEUM NORTH SCOTTSDALE: THE MOST ENRICHMENT FOR YOUR MONEY
Scottsdale’s winding desert roads and highways themselves are vivid chronicles of our city’s evolution since the first white settlers arrived to stake their claim to the region in 1868. One drive from one end of our desert home to the next makes our entire team of Airpark Collision Center proud of how far our city has come in 145 years.
On the other hand, the collection of the Heard Museum North Scottsdale tells an even deeper, richer story: that of America’s indigenous indian tribes’ past and present influence through their surviving arts, heritage and lifestyles.
With that sort of opportunity for enrichment right in our backyard, it’s our pleasure to recommend it as a must-see attraction to tourists and Scottsdale residents alike. We’re proud to see how it has developed alongside the community around it since the museum’s 1929 founding by Dwight and Maie Bartlett Heard.
For a mere $6 adult admission, the museum experience is truly a bargain. The 32633 N. Scottsdale Rd. Heard Museum North Scottsdale boasts a collection spread throughout two exhibition galleries. Over the past 15 years, the museum’s staff and directors have continued to expertly restore, maintain and improve attractions from the collection artifacts themselves to the gift shop and garden café. Today, it’s an internationally celebrated treasure with highly regarded artifact collections, educational programming and a slate of annual festivals.
“The Heard Museum is proud of its partnership with the city of Scottsdale and its residents,” said Heard Museum Director and CEO James Pepper Henry. “Our community location, Heard Museum North Scottsdale at the Summit, is an integral part of the cultural life of Scottsdale, and your continued support is appreciated. We look forward to another successful year of offering the best in American Indian art and history to residents and visitors alike.”
Enjoy the North Scottsdale location from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. To learn more, visit www.heard.org/north.
