I've been here a month ago in this museum, and I was genuinely impressed. I haven't thought any of this museum than the beautiful designed of the building having the perfect portrait of the numerous Native American tribes of our country which I admi.. Read more »

I love this place! The permanent exhibits are great as are the temporary ones. I would recommend starting on the third floor to and walking through the "Our Universes" exhibit. The cafeteria is kind of pricey but the food is pretty good. The gift sho.. Read more »
