National Museum Of The American Indian, New York City Reviews

  • A great small museum, well worth a visit. The building the museum in is huge and gorgeous and might give you the impression that this museum itself should be huge and sprawling. It isn't. It's effectively a very large airy courtyard, a gift shop, and three exhibition rooms. But the displays in the exhibitions are impressive, the permanent display does a fantastic job of show caring Native art and culture from all over the Americas and the major artifacts have video displays that can engross you with their accessibility and attention to detail. The rotating displays are also quite well crafted, at least in my times there, and have never failed to be thought provoking. Finally, a major plus, the museum is free to enter and never crowded. If you're a tourist I'd recommend coming here for a short visit while you go to see things in the financial district and the Battery. This, along with the museum inside the battery, is one of the hidden gems in New York's free low commitment museum world. But, if you're a New Yorker I'll recommend this museum at a perfect place to de-stress on your lunch break. Eat in the park, come here, and let history and the magnitude of our current relationship to the indigenous peoples who populated this land wash over you. (And enjoy the main domed room.) It's worth doing, and you'll feel better for it.

  • This Smithsonian Museum in lower Manhattan offers a nice selection of Indian artifacts in a historical building. And it's free to visit since it's a Smithsonian Museum. The weapons, clothing, other artifacts, and artwork offer a nice variety. One display which I think is a temporary one discusses the role American Indians played serving in various wars over the past two centuries. However, surprisingly little was devoted to the battles between early colonists and the Native Americans. The emphasis of the museum seemed to be on artifacts rather than providing historical information. However, touring it was educational. An interactive display for children provided much information that I found educational as an adult about the variety of products that American Indians developed that we still use today in one form or another. In that children's area I especially remember the display about a bridge construction method Indians used, their use of rubber, and the variety of foods they consumed that we now consume. I urge visitors to New York City to take a couple of hours to tour this museum and learn more about the American Indians and this historic building that served as a U.S. Custom House.

  • It is a 5 star museum.. To enter you are forced to take off your shoes and belt. Empty your pockets of all metals and then go through metal detectors. Multiple Armed guards will refuse your entry if you have a tiny little Swiss army knife on your key ring . They have no provisions to hold or lock up your property. Your only choice is to leave or throw away your property. My father's swiss army knife was on my key ring. He had died recently and it had sentimental value to me. It had 8 different little tools and a knife blade about 1 1/2 inches long. My keys we're more of a danger than that little Swiss army knife... I wouldn't recommend going to any federal museums and having to submit to their Armed Guards. Its only a matter of time before the bureaucrats make us strip naked and submit to cavity searches just to have the privilege to set foot on federal property. What ever happened to the Bill of rights or the US Constitution why do bureaucrats trample on our freedom.

  • This museum is really worth visiting if you are at the south end of Manhattan. There is no entry charge an a great range of information on show including some impressive clothing. You may be lucky enough to catch a talk. The shop has a wide range of interesting books and gifts.

  • The museum is located in a gorgeous building. The skylight is one of the main attraction beside the mural. The grand stairs and the ceiling are also jaw-dropping. To add that, the collections at the museum are remarkable.
