A branch of the Smithsonian Institution, this museum is notable primarily for the touring exhibits it hosts (and to be truthful, while some have been impressive others have been duds). Housed in the magnificent Customs House, designed by architect Cass Gilbert (see the first walking tour in chapter 7), the museum offers a robust program of performances, lectures, and courses on Native American topics each year.
