NMAI in New York City to remain closed after Hurricane Sandy





The National Museum of the American Indian in New York City remains closed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

The museum and its collection escaped damage despite extensive flooding in lower Manhattan. Power was restored on Sunday but the facility will stay closed pending restoration of steam and telecommunications, NMAI Director Kevin Gover said today.

"Gratefully, all museum staff are safe," Gover said. "Our thoughts are with all those who have, and continue to suffer, from Hurricane Sandy."
