National Museum of the American Indian

Home > New York > Museums
Published July 28th 2010
Housed in the historic Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House in Battery Park City, the George Gustav Heye Center of the National Museum of the American Indian, as one might suspect, celebrates the history, culture, literature, and arts of Native people.

The Smithsonian museum, which opened its doors in 1994, offers visitors a glimpse at Native cultures past and present through dance and music performances, films, educational programs, and permanent and rotating exhibits.

Through August, 8, museum-goers can check out "Ramp It Up: Skateboard Culture in Native America", which explores the creativity and controversy of Native American skate culture.

Admission to the museum is free and gratis adult group tours led by cultural interpreters and museum ambassadors are available daily. Advanced reservations are required.
