My son really loves to play cowboys & indians and I thought the Southwest Museum of the American Indian would be a highly educational experience for him. It really opened his eyes to the real American Indian culture and I think now he has a better appreciation for their culture than what hes received from the old Hollywood movies.

Well, I haven't been here in a while but when I did visit this museum for one of their Pow Wow events, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Granted, I am not much of a crafts person and can only look at so many pieces of pottery and baskets but they have a variety of sections beyond just art pieces on display. I enjoy the historical part and will go here eventually when I need inspiration for a story, want to connect the kids I work with to their own culture or others culture or just for the experience.

This is such a nice museum dedicated to the native American. The museum is the oldest in LA. There are Native American artifacts from all over North America, with exhibits of pre-columbian pottery and a full sized plains indian cheyenne teepee. Its travelling exhibitions, educational programs and theatrical events ahve made this museum an international center for indigenous american cultures. I had so much fun and learned so much when I was there, it will be a great deal of fun with your kids too.

The Southwest Museum is tucked away on a hillside in an older section of Los Angeles - Highland Park. It is a standard field trip destination for some of the local elementary schools, but it's great for an afternoon's stroll through the local history. They have an amazing collection of Native-American crafts, especially baskets. You'll see anything from huge baskets a grown person could hide in to something the size of an infant's hand. Some of the displays have seen better days, but they're still delightful to experience. The gift shop/bookstore has an interesting selection of items from local artists and writers. The museum staff are congenial and always willing to answer your questions.
