My girlfriend and I stopped here on a bike ride. I have ridden by many times but never took the time to stop in. I am glad that I finally did. The museum is full of Indian artifacts. Everything is well displayed and the caretakers...More

A Senior International Travel Agent went to Six Nations Museum in Onchiota and tells me it is one of the best museums of this type she has ever been in! She should know as she goes to many museums all over the world!

The museum is PACKED full of meaningful items from Akwesasne culture and history, told through the eyes of a talented family - the Faddens. Not only could I not take my eyes off the story belts, headdresses, canoes, artwork, paintings, photos, and signage, I wanted...More

This little museum in this tiny community, deep in the Adirondack Mountains, is an unheralded, under-visited gem. My first trip was when I was a child; then in the 1970's, I took my children. This time I took my grandson, a very bright 8 year...More
