In the image above I have used the sculpture The Beaver and the Mink by Susan Point as the sun over the National Museum of the American Indian. The sculpture is on display on the first floor of the museum.

In addition to changing exhibitions, the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian has many interesting exhibits including:

Our Universes Exhibition (objects depicting the sun, moon & stars)
Our Peoples Exhibition
Our Lives Exhibition
Rasmuson Theater
Mitsitam Cafe

The Mitsitam Cafe deserves special mention. This cafeteria style restaurant has the best and most interesting food I have ever encountered in any museum. The food is organized by five regions of the Western Hemisphere and inspired by Native recipes from those regions.
