The Heard Museum is a perfect date destination for southwest history buffs.  The museum contains artifacts, art work, and information about the native people of Arizona.  It began as a collection of items by the Heard family, a pioneer family in Phoenix.  They eventually decided to build a small musuem to allow the public to view the beautiful articles in their collection. 

Replica of a ovenToday, the museum has many galleries of beautiful handwork and items used by the Native American tribes in Arizona.  It also has displays of artwork and jewelry, and a large gallery dedicated to educational displays on the many native tribes.  You can view pottery, clothing, decorative articles, jewelry, and even replicas of the native homes.
