When you arrive at the Museum, please come in and let our history and culture captivate you.  Before your trip, preview exhibitions that are currently on view.  We love to answer questions, so please familiarize your students with the museum.  Teacher resources and suggestions for how to connect our exhibitions to your classroom curriculum are available via the curriculum suggestions.   Located inside the Museum is a small Gift Shop.  Please advise your students prior to the visit to bring money, if they wish to do so.

Students will see and learn many new things during their visit.  They will learn Seneca words.  We hope that teachers use these words as well during classroom activities.  Ask us why we are known as the People of the Great Hill.
