AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The National Museum of the American Indian, unveiled in 2004, is the newest addition to the Smithsonian Institute and one the largest museums dedicated to Native American history in the U.S. Over 800,000 artifacts (including 300,000 images) tell a story of indigenous lifestyles from pre-U.S. right through to today. The most compelling exhibit is Our Peoples in which tribal communities share their histories in their own words. We wouldn't normally recommend a museum café, but the Mitsitam is worth a visit too (try the buffalo chili).
