Right next to lots of public transportation, this museum is almost invisible. Not alot of people know about it. I did see some ad's on the subway once. Very, very nice place. Like all over New York City ... Parking is a drag so come on the bus or subway. The gift shop is very nice, you can find very nice gifts for anyone here.

This museum has a wide variety of native american clothing, art, and history on display. The guides there are very knowledgable and are happy to answer any question. There are also special events held on weekends where you can make a craft, ie friendship bracelets, or learn a skill the native americans used, ie playing drums.

PROS: Free admission
CONS:

The National Museum of the American Indian is part of the tri-museum series in New York, Maryland and Washington, DC. I been to the one in DC and NY and they are both great.

The one in NYC is located on 1 Bowling Green and outside, there is a very beautiful fountain. Many of the exhibitions here are extremely entertaining. They really teach you a lot of cultural material that you would never have had known.

The guides here are very informed and can give you very interesting tidbits.

There is a beautiful gift shop full of artifacts related to the American Indian.

This is a museum that is recommended.

The Gift Shop of the American Indian Museum has a lot of great stuff for sale. Beautiful books, some great posters and toys. My kids really liked shopping here and had never really been exposed to Native American culture before and found it fascinating.

The American Indian Museum used to be way uptown but a few years back they moved down to Bowling Green. They have a mind bending collection of artifacts from the peoples who inhabitated America for thouands of years. The displays are interesting and this is a great place to bring kids for a visit to supplement what little they learn in school about Native Americans.

The Museum in its new quarters is a spectacular site, with an amazing collection of artifacts from most of North America's tribes. The gift shop is a bit of a disappointment. They have some books and assorted knick knacks but it is not one of the great Museum gift shops in New York.
