Dedicated to the study, education and preservation of the culture and archeology of the Indians of Long Island, this museum showcases an extensive artifacts collection. Exhibits include unique hand tools, blades, hammers, and other early tools fashioned by the Indians who lived on Long Island as long ago as during the Ice Age. (Two of the five known Paleo points found on Long Island—arrowheads dating back to the Ice Age—are on display here.) You'll also view local wampum and clay pots. Artifacts from other regions are also prominently displayed, including Sioux leather garments, and magnificent beadwork from the tribes of The Great Plains. An entire floor features interactive exhibits for kids to touch and learn. Visitors in the summer months are treated to a special outdoor exhibit which takes optimal advantage of the museum grounds.
