Over the past year, the Iroquois Indian Museum has been closed, but has been hosting virtual programming such as a summer artist demos series, themed tours on their website, and virtual field trips with participants from all over North America.
The Museum is set to reopen this Thursday, April 1st, with limited hours and public health precautions in place.
Visitors will need to ring the bell to gain entrance and wear a mask and practice social distancing while inside the building. Individual activity packets for children will be offered while the interactive exhibits in the Children’s Museum are temporarily closed.
Visitors can learn about native plants from a Haudenosaunee perspective through labels near the entrance of the Park by the log houses that were transported to Howes Cave from Six Nations.
The Museum has planned a full schedule of mainly outdoor events each weekend in July and August, with additional programming in the fall.
For more information including hours of operation and a full schedule, visit the Museum’s website.
