Cool! Curious where it was, and what that location is like now.

I remember doing something similar after Destiny in The Republic was published (a book about Garfield's assassination). Kind of fun to walk around Union Station and imagine what it must have been like in such a different time. Or to figure out where Thomas Edison's laboratory used to be.

I am not a science person but it was still enjoyable...just not as enjoyable as seeing Archie and Edith’s chairs and the other iconic American culture items at the American History museum, lol. I wasn’t a big fan of the Native American museum (to me it was boring) But we had an awesome meal in their food court. They have foods from many different types of Native American groups, all different depending on whether they were from the plains, the far north, southwest, etc. Cactus salad was surprisingly yummy!
The Smithsonian's American Indian Museum is colorful,. but has a lot of empty space, they need to fill it with more exhibits. The Mitsitam Café inside is like you described, but the food has declined, according to recent negative reviews of it.

Oh that’s a shame!
