A museum dedicated to Native Americans, their culture, life, future and art. It has some interactive exhibitions, where kids can take home useful and interesting objects, either made by themselves or the staff. The whole place is full of history and art of the native tribes that were the original settlers of the land. Touring the museum gives you an insight into their art, lives and culture. It is educational and overwhelming in the same time.

Try to visit in February and you can attend their annual show of tribal dancing. It is really cool.
