[All other visitors, groups, tours, and researchers by appointment only]
Tomaquag Museum has a unique collection of over 20,000 cultural objects along with hundreds of thousands of pieces of archival materials focusing on the Native peoples of New England and Rhode Island. The Museum is well-respected among Rhode Island's and New England's cultural museums, and is visited each year by travelers from across the United States and throughout the world.
Regular visits by Native professionals, artists, storytellers and others add many perspectives to each visitor's discovery of the world at Tomaquag. Our special programs share Native perspectives on traditional health and well-being, education, history, culture and the Indigenous arts. Workshops on beadwork, pottery, herbal holistic healing, and painting are held regularly. Presentations for the public through our offsite programs, lectures, and cultural presentations bring our culture, traditional arts, and history to the public at large. Tomaquag’s other educational programs include specialized tours, Native games, Indigenous foods, Ecology of Mother Earth and Eastern Woodland Slide Presentations, Educator's Workshops, conferences, and contemporary issues and events.
