Iroquois Indian Museum

Groups can gather at an Iroquois longhouse-style building to visit the largest public collection of contemporary Iroquois art in the world. Educational programs led by Mohawk Iroquois educators provide an object-based learning environment where groups can learn about Iroquois culture and society today and in the past. An Independent Exploration booklet covers topics ranging from archeology to history, as well as current-day Iroquois. Groups can visit the interactive hands-on Children’s Iroquois Museum, see two Iroquois log houses, and hike through a beautiful 45-acre nature park.
