WHAT'S nEW AT THE MUSEUMS?
Presently on exhibit at the Native American
Culture Museum is an impressive collection of stone ceremonial
masks and pipes dating as far back as 6000 BC. You'd be
hard-pressed to find a better display of these amazing artifacts
anywhere else in the state! We continue our exhibit of trade
beads and peace medals along with a palmetto hut and everyday
items used by the Native Americans.
AND FOR THE KIDS!
Both museums have an activity area where children can learn to crochet, weave, make a pot holder, go on a scavenger hunt, sit in a rocking chair to read a book, color a Native American design, or take a peek in the Palmetto hut.
Each Saturday the docents in the Native American Museum help the children with a project. They make either a necklace, bracelet, or a clay pot that they take home with them.
