National Museum of the American Indian (Smithsonian Institution)
National Museum of the American Indian (Smithsonian Institution) Review
Massive granite columns rise to a pediment topped by a double row of statues at the impressive beaux arts Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House building (1907), which houses the New York branch of this Smithsonian museum (the other branch is in Washington DC). Inside, the egg-shape stairwell and rotunda embellished with shipping-theme murals (completed in the 1930s) are also worth a pause. The permanent exhibit, "Infinity of Nations," is an encyclopedic survey of Native cultures from throughout the Americas, including 700 objects from ancient times to present day. The venue also presents changing exhibits, videos and films, dance, music, and storytelling programs.
