The Museum of Indian Culture Reviews
The Museum of Indian Culture is small, but worth a trip if you are in or near the Allentown area. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable and provided us with a lot of information about the Lenape... more »
First visit to the Corn Festival this summer. It was a terrific learning experience. The grandchildren had a wonderful time. more »
This is a small museum but the collection of artifacts and displays is condensed effectively. No photos are allowed in the museum unfortunately. Tours are suitable for small groups and are affordable. The two tour guides I was led by today were very passionate, but were occasionally sidetracked. I did not have lime left to stay long at the gift shop. I hope in future this musuem could offer postcards of its own collection and/or allow photos of certain memorable exhibits.
We went to a corn roasting festival, they had vendors, drumming, singing, dancing. There was pony rides for kids and mural painting. A great event for the whole family. And the had roasted corn- ummy!!!
