Overview

Small museum just west of Southampton Village run by the Shinnnecock Nation, a Federally recognized tribe, on its Reservation. The main building is a log structure filled with Native American artifacts and exhibits about the Shinnecock culture and Woodlland Indian culture. It just opened a Living History village next to it depicting what life was like for Woodland Indians in the 1700's. Tribal members in period correct garb and demonstrate what Native American life was like before European settlement.

A visit to Southampton would not be complete without learning about the Shinnecock Nation, that has lived here for thousands of years. If you are not in town Labor Day for the Pow Wow, this may be your only opportunity.
