National Museum of American Indian

Most of the people who live in New York City take it for granted (including me). So, I decided to explore this beautiful city and see what it has to offer in terms of heritage, activities, etc. I was not dissapointed. I went to the National Museum of American Indian and they had all sorts of things related to Red-Indian culture.

I liked the architecture of the museum. It had beautiful art on the ceiling in the main hall. There were numerous charts, pictures and articles explaining how they (Red Indians) make leather and stitch clothes from them. The decorations that are used (and the materials they made the decorations from), etc. Many dresses were also on the display (one of which was over 500 years old).

Admission to the museum is free. It is open from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. However, it is always a good idea to call ahead. Their contact information is :

One Bowling Green
New York, NY 10004
Phone: 212-514-3700

Here are some pictures from my visit. I apologize for the small size of the pictures. My phone was set to contact pictures instead of regular ones and I was too excited to notice. Maybe I will go there again and get some more pictures.
