I recently saw the Northwest Natives exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. While a top notch museum in General, the NYC museum could--and probably does--covet this detailed and superbly laid out exhibition. From the lifestyle and authentic artifacts of the ancient Salish peoples, to the initial interactions between tribes and Captain Grey, then the French fur-trappers, later the Christian missionaries, soldier/explorers and settlers coming over the Oregon Trail, followed by the industrial, nuclear and space ages, this museum is a gem of a resource! Oh, and it's a fun and interesting way to pass the day. 5 minutes' walk to the Art Museum, the University of Washington Tacoma Branch, theatre district and many fine eateries.
