Homeschool Travels - Smithsonian Native American Museum

Located near the US Capitol building, within a block of the US Botanical Gardens you will find a hidden gem of a museum.....The Smithsonian Native American Museum.  Like all other Smithsonian Museum there is not an admission charge.  The building architecture was amazing!

 The lights from the ceiling were creating rainbows.  Caty was in love!

 So many exhibits

Caty and I just read about this totem pole when learning about the Northwest Coast Native Americans.

Wonderful displays and historical information at this museum.  I wish I could've stayed and explored (and actually read) longer.  The kids were antsy since this was our last stop of the day.  The artifacts here were interesting and there were hands-on displays to learn more.  Great educational experience!!
