I have visited this incredible collection of New Hampshire native culture many times and had the pleasure of having the founder Bud Thomson give me a personal tour some years ago. The museum does not just give the attendee the history of the area's Native people, but an understanding of contemporary Native culture and arts. There are many hands-on projects... More

I accompanied third graders from Nashua on a field trip to the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum. Our tour guide, Jo-Ann, gave an excellent tour. She was very knowledgeable and worked well with the third graders in explaining NH native history. I had never heard about this museum and I have lived in NH since 1977. I was surprised that NH...

An outstanding thorough collection of American Indian artifacts gathered due to the lifelong passion of one individual. Ask for John, who gave us the best guided tour. Not to be missed!

We attended their 17th annual Pow Wow today. It was a wonderful experience for my family. My 6 year old daughter was quite interested and engaged in the whole experience, from watching the ceremonies to the two museums. I wish we visited the Medicinal Woods earlier in the day - we had to leave. We will be back!

We were in the area on vacation and decided to visit the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum. We are glad we did since the collection of Native American items from across the USA is extensive. John who took us on the guided tour is very knowledgeable and really loves what he does. If you like Native American history this is a... More

I visited the museum with my 2 year old granddaughter & we really enjoyed the tour. She got to grind corn. Our tour guide was very informative. We loved our visit.

I have been to this museum several times over the years and it seems they keep getting better and better! Who knew that NH had such a rich Native history and museum with rotating exhibits? Their docents are so knowledgeable and most if not all have Native ancestry - which makes their first hand accounts more real and valuable. One... More

Don't hesitate to visit this hidden gem just up the road on scenic Kearsarge Mountain Rd. You will be amazed at the collection that has been lovingly and meticulously accumulated over the years. You'll journey through the Northeast Woodlands, Southwest, Southeast, Great Plains, and the Pacific Northwest. Outdoors, the Medicine Woods is a great place to learn about plants and... More
