New Museum On The Mall Blends History And Nature

The National Museum of the American Indian opens in Washington D.C.

"Even on the outside, the National Museum of the American Indian is distinctly different from the other museums lining the National Mall. Its curving, limestone façade resembles the walls of a desert canyon in the American southwest that have been worn by wind and water:

On the museum's grounds, water cascades over rock walls and courses through a landscape of more than 150 species of native plants ranging from water lilies to stalks of corn."
