The Museum of Indian Culture, located in the Lehigh Parkway, is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to presenting, preserving, and perpetuating the history and cultural heritage of the Northeastern Woodland Indians and other American Indian tribes. Visitors are welcome to peruse the museum on a guided tour, conduct research in a comprehensive resource library, schedule an educational program for children or adults, and attend festivals and special events throughout the year.
STARTING IN 2010, THERE ARE TWO ANNUAL FESTIVALS: Artifest in June and the Roasting Ears of Corn Native American festival in August. A story-telling event called Fright Night in October and an Open House in November round out the year. All events are family-friendly.

Bring your binoculars and you might catch a glimpse of a hawk.
As the saying goes, you can’t understand another person until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins. The Museum of Indian Culture and Lenni Lenape Historica Society gives kids just this kind of opportunity. Children will enjoy the many hands-on exhibits that illuminate Native American culture, as well as the exhibits of tools, baskets, and crafts.
Three ceremonies are held annually: Corn Planting in May; Roasting Ears of Corn in August; and Time of Thanksgiving in October. There are also picnic facilities, two nature trails, and a fish hatchery.
