I am pleased to announce that the National Museum of the American Indian in New York will reopen to the public on Wednesday, November 14th, and resume normal operations.
This has been a challenging time for us and for all of the institutions and individuals who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. We are grateful that the museum did not sustain any serious damage, and our thoughts are with those who continue to suffer in the aftermath of this devastating storm.
