NMAI in New York City set to reopen following Hurricane Sandy





The National Museum of the American Indian in New York City will reopen tomorrow, more than two weeks after it closed due to Hurricane Sandy.

The museum and its collection escaped damage despite extensive flooding in lower Manhattan. Operations are finally back to normal.

"This has been a challenging time for us and for all of the institutions and individuals who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy," NMAI Director Kevin Gover said today. "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."
