National Museum of the American Indians is on a 4.25-acre (1.7-hectare) site east of the National Air and Space Museum and just south of the U.S. Capitol Building.
South-facing liquid-filled crystal prisms catch the suns rays and reflect a rainbow-like light spectrum onto the interior of the entry hall, called the Potomac area. This light show changes every day and is at its height from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The five-story building has 250,000 square feet (23,200 square meters) of floor space.
Officials of the museum speaks to VOA about the museum.
