The Iroquois Indian Museum building is a work of art designed in the shape and spirit of the old longhouses that once graced the valleys of upstate New York. Visitors walk through the Museum in a counter- clockwise direction mimicking Skywoman’s movements as she created earth on Turtle’s back. Archeology exhibits focus on the ancestors of the Iroquois from 10,000 years ago until European contact. History exhibits highlight the men’s realm of hunting, warfare, chieftainships, and games and the women’s realm of the longhouse, the clans, the crops, and politics. The Museum represents the worlds most comprehensive collection of modern Iroquois art work. This collection celebrates the ancient unity of the Iroquois still expressed in the creative spirit of today’s artists. A special interactive Children’s area introduces young visitors to Iroquois traditions through a variety of crafts, games and technologies. A guide posted Nature Park of 45 acres is open year round for walks, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.

The women working here were very accommodating to our kids. I was hoping for much more history here. The upside was the downside here. The main focus of the museum is the Mohawk iron workers which is really interesting and knew information to me. Otherwise...More

For a small local museum, you can find some interesting artifacts and listen to stories told of the past generations. The $8.00 per adult is reasonable. but a steal when to POW WOW is in town.

Had limited time in breaking our car journey, so chose Iroquois Museum over the nearby caves. This was a very old-fashioned type of museum with little interaction to engage the customer other than static exhibits with descriptive tags. If you are a UK visitor who...More

Hi, I'm sorry you were disappointed with your visit. We have a number of interactive activities in our Children's Museum as well as outdoor nature trails. Can you tell me when you visited?

This was a rather small museum which was somewhat boring, but for the low price of $8.00 per adult I really couldn't complain. It did have some interesting findings, but I don't think I'd visit it again.

We stopped here after going to Howe Caverns. It a very informational museum. The ground floor is great for kids, there are some wonderful crafts and exhibits geared especially for kids. The main floor has some very informative displays. I'm glad we stopped.

This seemed a pretty small place. But looking through the eyes of young children, it was just right. Since the day was built around them, that was a win. We got a $1 per person discount from our Howe Caverns tickets, a nice thing. We...More
