On-site Tours: Enjoy a 90-minute interactive tour of our ongoing “Regional Tour of American Indian Cultures” exhibit. This tour is led by a highly trained docent who will highlight the cultural similarities and differences within and between the five distinct geographic regions. The tour also includes time in the teaching lodge, which houses our life-size hunting wigwam and traditional games. You also get to pick a hands-on craft activity that participants make and take home!
Coming Soon! In partnership with other community educational organizations, we are working to create a way to bring the museum and at-home curriculum to you.
