The Museum of Indian Culture, Pennsylvania’s oldest Native American heritage museum, is a unique resource center for people of all ages to learn about the Lenape (Delaware) and other American Indian tribes. Located in an eighteenth century stone farmhouse in the scenic Little Lehigh Parkway, the Museum has educated the community about Native American heritage for over 38 years. Each year, the Museum provides guided tours of hands-on exhibits showcasing Native American tools, basketry, artwork, photographs, textiles, and beadwork. Visitors learn to grind corn using a mortar and pestle, make a fire with a softwood fire kit, and even try their hand at the ancient American Indian hunting implement, the atlatl (weather permitting). The Museum also offers a comprehensive research library and educational outreach programs for school and community organizations throughout the region.

MUSEUM CURRENT FEATURED EXHIBITS: “WARRIOR SPIRIT”
“Warrior Spirit: Journey of the Native American Warrior,” honors a long tradition and largely unknown participation of native peoples in the U.S. military. Since the Revolutionary War, Native Americans have served in every major conflict and at a higher rate in proportion to their population than any other ethnic group.
The spirit of the Native American warrior is deeply rooted in culture and tradition. “Warrior Spirit: Journey of the Native American Warrior” chronicles the history of native participation in the U.S. military amidst wars fought on a land that once was theirs and also abroad. This 200-year history is told through pictures, stories of heroism, and wartime relics, including 1940’s field radios used during WWII by Navajo Code Talkers who used their once forbidden language to help save this nation “KACHINAS: SPIRIT DOLLS OF THE HOPI”
“Kachinas: Spirit Dolls of the Hopi” features over 50 hand-carved and hand-painted wooden figures based on Hopi kachinas. Carved by George Melloy, a retired Bethlehem Steel Metallurgical Engineer, the sculptures reproduce with stunning color and historical accuracy the full round of Hopi ceremonies, including the Bean Dance ceremony and the Winter Solstice ceremony. Visit us and learn the fascinating history of Hopi kachinas and their pivotal role in Pueblo Indian cultures. "THE GREAT NATIVE AMERICAN TOOLKIT" - This exhibit features prehistoric stone tools and pottery used by the ancient Mississippian (Mound Builder) cultures, Northeastern Woodland Lenape / Delaware / Iroquois, and Anasazi / Pueblo of the Southwest, and ancient bone fishing tools carved by Alaskan Natives. The Great Native American Toolkit tells the story of the creative genius of North America’s first peoples and their ability to survive and thrive using similar tools made from regional resources.
