The drive to the museum took 45min. When we finally got there it took us like 5min. to find the entry! When you walk inside the building and look up at the ceiling is like no other ceiling I've ever seen. It was like a spiral almost! There are four floors in the building. My group and I went to the fourth floor first. When we looked over a ledge everyone on the ground floor looked like ants! On the third floor there was a scavenger hunt. You had a passport. There were different activities that you do. These are some of the activities. One, you had to balance in a canoe for 59 sec. Next there was a skateboarding activitiy. You pick a boy or girl on a t.v there was 60 sec. on the clock. Then you had to control the board and get points around the skate park. You try to get as many points as you can get. Next me and my group went to an exhibit that was all about the Woodland Indian myths. There were also little screens with the constellation myths of the Indians. Next we went to lunch. We talked about how much fun we had and how we didn't want to leave. Then the time came when we had to leave.The drive back was longer because we were in traffic. That was our trip to the National Museum of the American Indian!
