National Museum Of The American Indian - Review

The Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian in the National Mall area in Washington D.C. showcases the history of Native American protests from old Pre-Columbian human advancements through the 21st century. There are many interesting exhibits and eye-opening material that will certainly be awe-inspiring.

The galley is home to a wide variety of artefacts relating to the Native American life. Learning how they were slowly driven out of their own country is a very shocking but interesting experience. The Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe which is a part of the premises serves the traditional Native American food and eating at this gallery is a genuine treat.

  • Well worth a visit. The exhibits are a little disjointed from each other but they're also each absolutely brilliant in their own right (though a couple tend towards whitewashing American history, others are absorpt top notch). I'd recommend giving yourself 5 hours if you want to go round properly - but as long as you're happy to just look at the exhibits rather than read about them then you can get round in 2 or 3 hours. The cafeteria is absolutely amazing and you owe it to yourself to try it out - I only had the Mexican Hot Chocolate and I can testify it was one of the best things I've ever tasted, but the rest of the menu looked great as well.

  • A really thought-provoking experience. It's more than just history; there's art, religion, & contemporary culture in there as well, and a lot of things that tie America' past to the continued injustices of the present. My one problem is, while some exhibits were straight up excellent, a few others veered a little close to whitewashing some of the atrocities that the United States has committed against its native people. That didn't feel right, and I wish it would receive some closer attention. That aside, the museum still puts some much-needed focus on Native voices and is 100% worth a visit.

  • What a beautiful museum! Such rich culture is portrayed. Stories are told in the most engulfing fashion. The food was amazing too! Shared a platter with an equally hungry friend. Meals are on the expensive side so please do not waste your money on a burger if you eat here. Try the authentic cuisine!

  • Such a big beautiful empty building. I would love to say this place is awesome but it's not. It's pretty empty and boring. So much potential but nothing going on in this place. The only good thing that I would say is a complete five star is the Children's section. If you're looking for something fun in a museum to do exclusive lie with your kid I would definitely say this is top three right here. Outside of that this museum is pretty damn terrible. I hope they fix it because I love Indian culture and history and I feel that it is almost an insult of how terrible it is. This was their country first. They deserve more.

  • This is an awesome Smithsonian Museum. They have a great cafeteria too. I like to start at the top floor and work my way down. Don't miss the 360 degree movie on the top floor.
