The Natives Were Restless

Joseph's class went on a field trip this week to the National Museum of the American Indian.  It's an incredible space in a phenomenal location, and the architecture continues to blow my mind.

We didn't spend all that much time at the museum.  The kids got to see a short movie and some live performances in the rotunda.  They spent a good chunk of time in the interactive "imagiNATIONS Activity Center" where there are a bunch of hands-on activities like basket weaving, kayaking, and a full size tipi to play in, collecting tribal seal stamps in a passport along the way.

Mostly, they got to run amok and be goofballs with their friends, which is the perfect (and preferred) activity for a bunch of restless kids.

Looks like a fun day. I've never visited the museum and am curious about the exhibits. Sounds like they have the kids activities angle well-covered, though- and fun!
