The Mitchell Museum of the American Indian is one of only a handful of museums across the country that focuses exclusively on the art, history, culture, and current events of Native American and First Nation peoples from throughout the United States and Canada. It promotes public understanding of cultural diversity through first voice perspectives. Exhibits span the various Indigenous cultures of the US and Canada, including local heritage and woven arts. Families enjoy crafts every weekend, play time in the wigwam, and touching furs, horns, model canoes, rugs, and more to learn about Native American cultures. The Mitchell Museum gift shop offers jewelry, coloring books, basket weaving kits, toys, and more!
Each Saturday and Sunday, families can learn about Native Americans through crafts inspired by different cultures. The craft themes change each month, offering new experiences and fun. During the week (Tuesday-Friday), the Mitchell Museum offers the Tricksters! Family Films and Crafts program that helps kids learn about Indigenous values. The program includes a screening of the award-winning “Raven Tales” animated series (a new episode each day!) and three wily crafts to choose from: a coyote puppet, a dream catcher, or a small raven coloring book. The Tricksters! program is only $3 per person; combined with your Pogo Pass free museum admission, it’s an affordable and fun day for everyone!
