I am thankful that a museum to honor Indian culture was opened. I guess that it's difficult to represent every tribe on the continent, but I did leave wishing for more representation. This museum contains mostly art, so perhaps more movies, music, history, etc. would make the museum even better.

A family favorite. Particularly well designed --- the building itself and the exterior landscaping are worth the visit just in themselves. Well thought out exhibits appeal to interests of younger folk. Fabulous food court downstairs with the best food in the mall -- fresh food representative of my tribal nations.

One of the newer of the Smithsonian museums, the NMAI is a great place built on a new model of museums. The NMAI is a joint effort between the curators and the native americans themselves. Most of the exhibits are jointly curated by the museum, and the real experts--the the native americans. There are exhibits on many of the north american tribes, and descriptions about their ways of life directly from the people who live it. The museum was not particularly crowded when we were there in early May. Since it is part of the Smithsonian, the facilty has no admission charge. Most of the exhibits are on the third and fourth floors. It was a little annoying going up through two stories of gift shops, etc. We were staring to wonder where the actual museum was, but once we made our way upstairs, we were not disappointed! Highly recommended!
