We visited here on Sat 8/04 in the morning. This place has been on our radar for awhile. This is located on the originally homeland of the Senecas of the Iroquois Confederation. It's a NYS site and is staffed by people of the Seneca tribe...More

Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that it was such an important educational experience for you.
Thoroughly recommend a visit to this calm and informative museum. Beautifully presented and curated with enthusiastic, respectful and knowledgeable staff. The setting is wonderful and the long house is the jewel in the crown. Recreated with care it really evokes life in the village prior...More
A small but charming museum delivering information on the true original american population. In this case the Seneca nation, part of the Iroquois confederation. I could hear the local servants speaking in the seneca old language. A small shop allows you to buy some iroquois...More

Thank you so much for your kind words. We're so glad you enjoyed our Native American Winter Games. Please visit again for our other events.
Great place to bring children when they have events going on during school breaks. We played a trading game with four teams to see who could get "rich" with their trades based on a 1600 to 1700 economy. Very interesting, educational and was an activity...More

We look forward to having you come visit! The longhouse reopens every May 1 through October 31. We remove all the objects for storage and safekeeping during the months we are closed to keep them in good condition as the longhouse is unheated. Please know that there is a scaled down version of it in our Seneca Art & Culture Center, along with many other fascinating exhibits. We have a new exhibit opening on March 24 as well!
