600-900 AD, Tiwanaku, Bolivia. The National Museum of the American Indian is one of the Smithsonian museums. It's located on the south end of the National Mall (on the northwest corner of Independence Avenue & 3rd Street SW). I'm glad I had a chance to visit this museum (for the first and, maybe, only time) when I was in town for a few weeks around Halloween (as all of the Smithsonian museums are, once again, temporarily closed). The building is of interesting architectural design both inside and out. On the outside, you can also find the National Native American Veterans Memorial directly in front of the main entrance. Also, along the Mall side, you'll find a fountain and some other interesting features. Once you enter the museum, during these pandemic times, you pass a scanner, show your timed entry ticket (which you have to schedule ahead of time), and then follow the recommended route which is: take the elevator up to the 4th (top) floor, pass through the exhibition halls there that are open, then work your way down the stairs. They had it set up, roughly, to recommend a prescribed route to help maintain order and distance. That helped. During my visit, the exhibitions were roughly as follows: on the 4th floor, a fairly general history between the U.S. government and various tribes; on the third floor, an exhibit about the marketing of the Native American image, with smaller galleries dedicated to Little Bighorn and Pocahontas, and a special exhibition on the Incas of South America; the second floor was mainly a gift shop; and the first floor is simply the atrium with entrance/exit. All told, I think I comfortably spent about two hours here and enjoyed my visit. I'm certainly not against going back someday, though will probably visit some of the other museums I haven't been to as well.
