Heard Museum and Desert Botanical Garden

Two of the Southwest’s most unique visitor attractions, The Heard Museum and the Desert Botanical Garden, have teamed up to present an unbeatable tour designed to acquaint visitors with the diversity of our region and the resourcefulness of its Native American people. This tour includes visits to both attractions plus lunch on the outdoor terrace at the Desert Botanical Garden. The Heard Museum, a museum of Native American cultures and art, is internationally recognized for its collections of Native American artifacts and contemporary fine art. The Desert Botanical Garden displays more than 10,000 desert plants in a spectacular outdoor setting. It is one of the finest collections of desert plants in the world. Plants and People of the Sonoran Desert, a three-acre permanent exhibit with authentic historic and prehistoric structures, shows how Sonoran Desert dwellers have used native plants for thousands of years for food, construction, fiber, and medicines.
