The rich cultural offerings of the Heard Museum North Scottsdale will be available to Scottsdale residents free of charge Sept. 16-30. It’s the museum’s way of thanking the community for its support.

For a Scottsdale resident to be admitted free, he or she should simply present identification such as a driver’s license or city water bill when visiting Heard North, 32633 N. Scottsdale Road, at Ashler Hills Drive. Adults are normally charged $6 to enter the museum.

The Heard Museum North Scottsdale features two exhibition galleries, a shop and a garden café. As it has done for the past 15 years, the location continues to present outstanding exhibitions featuring the renowned collections of the Heard Museum.

“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.”

The museum’s mission is to educate people about the arts, heritage and life ways of the Indigenous peoples of the Americas, with an emphasis on American Indian tribes of the Southwest.

Since its founding by Dwight and Maie Bartlett Heard in 1929 -- as a small museum in a small Southwestern town -- the Heard has grown in size and stature. It is recognized internationally today for the quality of its collections, its educational programming and its festivals. The Heard is a living museum -- giving voice to a uniquely American people.

The North Scottsdale location is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday during September. The museum is closed Sundays and Mondays.
