  • We came for the 38th Annual Iroquois Festival. This was our first time here. The landscape is lovely; many folks we met were lovely. We thought the museum was very enjoyable with the exhibits and interactive children's activities. Overall, it was wonderful and we would return. There is even nature trails to follow, well rounded.
  • Thrilled to find this during a visit to Howe Caverns. A great history of the Haudenosaunee peoples. Really good exhibits with a kid friendly interactive area downstairs, and some beautiful art by native artists. You get a discount if you show your Howe Cavern ticket. Highly recommended.
