Let's sketch the museum’s permanent and temporary exhibitions—as well as a range of public programs, including music and dance performances, films, and symposia—explore the diversity of the Native people of the Americas.
In addition, the building itself is a fantastic Beaux Arts structure with loads of interesting lines and perspective challenges.
