Washington - National Museum of the American Indian

Native American MuseumOn my first visit to Washington DC, we went to the Smithsonian American Indian Museum. The Inka Exhibition was on at this time and moving through the rooms of this gallery reminded me very much of the time, in the mid-70s when I spent 17 weeks in a truck with a small group, travelling all across South America.

The National Museum of the American Indian houses one of the world’s largest and most diverse collections of its kind. The museum’s sweeping curvilinear architecture, its indigenous landscaping, and its exhibitions, all designed in collaboration with tribes and communities from across the hemisphere, combine to give visitors from around the world the sense and spirit of Native America.
