My inherent interest in Indigenous people, their language, culture and history made me visit NMAI this December. From the first step into the museum, I was very impressed by the way it was presented and what it presented. The video presentation and the theatre itself was extremely impressive and so were some of the artefacts. The thematic separations meant that I could spend more or less time on a particular theme and it also provided the opportunity to contemplate on what I saw and experienced. Watching or reading Jarred Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel would enable one to look at the artefacts here from an entirely new perspective.
I thoroughly enjoyed the couple of hour I spent here but must add that for someone with a reasonable interest like me, it could take days or many visits to soak up things presented here.
