We definitely enjoy going here (especially for the flute festival) but don't expect to spend the whole day or even more then an hour or so.
SunWatch is an authentic Native American village recreated close to the banks of the Great Miami River. Very educational and very well maintained. Makes a great afternoon field trip!
I went here with my class in 4th grade and I remember having lots of fun. They have recreated some of the indian huts that they would have lived in back then and it was neat to see this. It was a neat experience and I would definitely go back again sometime if I can.
Take your kids to learn about early Native Americans. Sadly it needs a facelift (Come on, Dayton, spend some tax dollars here). Good re-creation of stone age village and lots of artifacts, but not to the level of the Cahokia Mounds. Go in spring or fall, before it gets hot and muggy. Will take about 2 hours.
This is a great way to learn about prehistoric peoples living in Ohio. You get to enter directly into their livestyles and ways of living. This is also great fun for the entire family.
This was a very cool place to take the kids. I had never been. It is really neat to see what they have uncovered and recreated. Go when they are having special events and you'll see and learn even more. Great outing for a sunny weekend afternoon!
This was interesting and I learned a little but it was mostly hot and not very entertaining. I am glad I went and if you haven't been I'd recommend you go but I don't feel any need to go back.
Nice recreation of prehistoric Indian village located outside the museum. You can tour the village and get an idea of how they lived. The museum is small with artifacts and information about prehistoric Indians.
