Lunch hour today was a return visit to the Smithsonian Native American Museum located in the historic Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House. What an amazing building! In addition to the Native American Museum, I discovered the National Archives as well an interactive exhibit on the lower level called imagiNATIONS Activity Center. See earlier visit >
Its a small exhibit but there's separate fully-equipped room for doing research.
