The Children's area, located on the ground floor of the Museum, welcomes young people with their parents or teachers. The main exhibit in the Children's Area is a fun and
kid-friendly extension of our Feature Exhibition on the main floor of the Museum.
Descending the stairs, visitors are reminded of the Iroquois Creation Story, when Sky Woman fell from a hole in the Sky World and was carried on the wings of water birds to the back of the great turtle. The Iroquois relationship to the natural world is emphasized in our live turtle pond.
Visitors are encouraged to examine the rattles and waterdrums or identify furs. There are a variety of independent exploration exercises such as Find-a-Word and Museum Quizzes as well as coloring pages that can be created and taken home.
