Absolutely incredible, a must see in DC! The Museum is much larger than we anticipated, spanning 7 floors. We unfortunately didn’t have enough time to see the entire museum, so we’ll certainly return in the future.
I came to the United States on a business trip and took the subway to visit the Smithsonian Museum area on weekends. This museum is one of them. It is the National Indian Museum of the United States. It is one of the largest collections of American Indian art and cultural items in the world, including jewelry, pottery, textiles, paintings, statues and so on. The museum is divided into several themes, namely "Our World", "Our People" and "Our Life". Compared with other museums in Washington’s National Mall, it is even different in appearance. Its exterior walls are made of limestone and turned into a curved facade, which represents the desert canyons in the southwestern United States through thousands of A unique landscape formed after thousands of years of wind and rain erosion. Outside the museum, there are more than 150 kinds of American characteristic plants with beautiful flowers. Of course, this one is also related to the season. There are many varieties of these plants, from water lilies to corn stalks. People who are interested can also spend a little time here. This kind of natural landscape can also be found in the museum. There are plants and rocks for decoration everywhere. There is also a circular performance field. There is a dome-shaped skylight above the head, symbolizing the connection with the sky. Four stones are arranged in the middle part. Fan. The museum is carefully designed by a dedicated person, and people who are interested in decoration and design can also come here. Any museum in this area needs to go through a security check before you can enter the exhibition hall. When you enter from the gate, you will see the security check area. There is a security check bag and a security guard sweeps the body with a metal detector. Soon, you can enter after completion . Its security procedures are the same as other museums.
There are relatively few Chinese tourists here, and there are many locals alone. This place is submerged by the aura of the Aerospace Museum and the Museum of History and Nature. But here is very worth visiting, the architectural design imitates the shape of the canyon, showing the culture of the Indians.
The Indian Museum is a very good place to learn about the history of American Indians. We have limited time and only visited the section introducing Indians. The content of the introduction is very exciting, and the exhibition is also worth visiting. The museum is huge.
The Native Americans also contain a lot of Indian characteristics. This Indian Museum seems to be quite interesting. The National Museum has a lot of meaningful art collections. It's not bad to visit here.
