Southeast Pennsylvania has tons of museums that showcase Native American history and culture, so if you’re looking for a way to spend a Sunday afternoon with the family that will be both fun and educational, you have plenty of options to choose from.
Museum of Indian Culture
The Museum of Indian Culture, located in Allentown, is a small museum with an impressive collection of Native American artifacts, particularly stone weapons and tools. The museum seeks to give its visitors a realistic look at the daily life of regional tribes.
Indian Steps Museum
The Indian Steps Museum in Airville combines local and national Native American history and culture and is located in the former home of John Vandersloot, an enthusiast who spent decades curating a collection of Native American artifacts. The museum is located on the bank of the Susquehanna River, so it’s also a great place to see the sights!
State Museum of Pennsylvania and Reading Public Museum
Though the State Museum of Pennsylvania and the Reading Public Museum aren’t just Native American museums, they both have large exhibits and collections devoted to the culture and art of Native American tribes around the country. From right here in our home state of Pennsylvania to the Native tribes of Central America, these museums cover a huge range of Native culture and history, both literally and figuratively.
