    I went with my Native American friend to learn more about his culture. Well, I learned about his (Pima) along with Navajo, Zuni, Hopi, and on and on and on. The jewelry was nice to look at, and I even learned where The Curse Of The Black Widow Spider got their idea for a scripted horror film. I was impressed.

    Beautiful museum but the cost for the Lego exhibit was too much. The area was small nothing exciting. Little sections were set up with flash cards that showed a Lego picture and how to make it, however there was not the correct Legos in the basket. Slightly disappointed about this and my 4 year old was also let down.

    Great place to learn more about the southwestern Native Americans. The boarding school exhibit is unique among native American museums. Make sure to take the free guided tours.

    I got free admission with a Harn Museum membership. It is worth going. I learned a lot about Native American's culture, history, and art. The free tours are really helpful. The tour guides are volunteers who are quite knowledgable and even professional on Indians' development. Really nice.
    The gift shop and book store sell really fancy but expansive crafts.
