Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum

This museum is a place for students and scouts to explore and learn about the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Filled with traditional art, crafts, and historical documents, the museum tells the stories of Seminole people past and present. Groups can learn about the exhibits, make their own Indian crafts, see wildlife demonstrations, and more. The museum’s boardwalk takes visitors on a walk above the Everglades, and features information about the 8 currently existing clans. Follow the boardwalk to the recreated Seminole Village - where artists are often at work making crafts, and are happy to give demonstrations.
