Went for OHNY weekend tour. The tour guide worked on integrating the Native American museum within a historical building, explained the challenges they faced and the ideas that made it happen. It was very insightful. Beautiful building with cool history.
This could be the worst museum ever. Every little history, not much on the local indian tribes and exhibits are BORING! some mocked up clothes, poor pottery and arrowheads -- in retrospect it is an oversized version of the exhibit every boy scout puts together at some point. Don't go!!
Positive point -- its free!
A must see for anyone even a little interested in Native American history and culture. They have tons of artifacts from different tribes, a hall with contemporary art by Native artists, and a really cool permanent exhibition on modern native Americans and the part they played in forming rock music. Even better, it's free and located across the street from Battery Park. The only con is that at times the layout of the museum is a bit confusing and maps aren't offered. Also, since it's free I don't think there are guided tours.
