About
Small museum just west of Southampton Village run by the Shinnnecock Nation, a Federally recognized tribe, on its Reservation. The main building is a log structure filled with Native American artifacts and exhibits about the Shinnecock culture and Woodlland Indian culture. It just opened a Living History village next to it depicting what life was like for Woodland Indians in the 1700's. Tribal members in period correct garb and demonstrate what Native American life was like before European settlement.

A visit to Southampton would not be complete without learning about the Shinnecock Nation, that has lived here for thousands of years. If you are not in town Labor Day for the Pow Wow, this may be your only opportunity.

This is a peaceful place. Not a tourist attraction, but an area where you can really appreciate the silence and tranquility.

Was passing by and noticed the museum in Southampton. It is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. It is a small museum that chronicles the Shinnecock history through different historical eras. There are interesting murals from each time period, as well as historical descriptions and artifacts. There is a village in the back but unfortunately it is not open at this time as there was damage from the extra snowy winter.

A small museum with local artifacts on the Shinnecock tribe and local history. We hit this on the way out form a week in Montauk. It's open only on Friday and the weekend. The museum is housed in a newer log style building. Plan to spend about an hour or so. It does give a quick view on the Shinnecock. The "Village" area out back was wrecked by the last hurricane and not repaired at the time of this visit.

The museum is really a great place to experience the Shinnecock Native Americans. Ask for a guided tour and a very nice guide will describe the culture and life style pointing to the minute details and their significance in the life tirelessly. There are some astonishing bronze art works in the basement floor. Unless you pay a visit and listen to the guide, you will never know what you were missing.
