Memorial Day is Monday May 27th, so join us for children’s hour and meet a Native Veteran to hear about their service to our country. Then help us plant sage in our memorial garden so that we can continue to pick and share this traditional medicine with those we want to honor for their service to our communities. Sage bush is traditional to the western hemisphere of North America but its medicinal use has been adopted across North America and variations of Sage including European varieties are now widely used as traditional medicines. Learn more with us at Children’s Hour. 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.
