Time to get outside and explore! Baskets, boats and beauties, there’s nothing Birch can’t make brilliant! Explore the museum and see how many ways you can identify birch being used. Then join us as we learn about responsible birch bark harvesting and make our own birch bark heart ornaments to hang in your home. Have you ever considered what grows all around us? From food to technology, medicine to spirituality, nature can truly provide us with everything we need. Starting May 1st to the end of August at Children's Hour, we are focusing traditional uses of indigenous plants.

Children’s Hour at Tomaquag Museum is a FREE public program held every Wednesday morning from 10:00-11:00 am for children of all ages. Each week features a different interactive lesson. Through music, dance, storytelling, crafts and Narragansett language, museum educators focus on Indigenous New England history, culture and art.
