I loved the thoughtfulness of the building design. While the museum itself is small, they have provided a very thoughtful collection of both historical items and current artists works. The children's ...section is very hands on, and we had the opportunity to watch and join in with some beautiful and fun social dances. See More

I wanted to take one of the Paint turtles that were swimming in a little pond, but Paul distracted me with the puzzles in the children's section.. Of course he won putting his puzzle together first.. ...Always an "Overachiever" and hard worker. ;) See More

It was a good experience. I especially liked the tribute to the Mohawk Ironworkers. When I worked construction projects in the 1960s I would watch them in awe as they walked the high girders like th...ey were on the ground without any hesitation. See More

The museum was a gorgeous take on a long house. The museum is small but had a fantastic selection focusing on pairing history and contemporary art.

What a beautiful museum! I absolutely love the collections and the way they are displayed. We saw the buckskin to bikini art on display, so many talented artists. The curators were friendly and knowle...dgable and it gave me a better understanding of Haudenosaunee culture. The transition from upstairs to downstairs was really cool how it reflects the creation story. We met Mary and Samantha Jacobs there demonstrating their amazing bead work and we joked how we needed a concession stand with hot scoons, and strawberry water! Haha it was a lovely trip, much better and more airy than the caves nearby. If you would like an amazing day trip I recommend checking this and the connecting nature trails out. See More

This Museum may be small in size compared to some museums, but size definitely does not matter. Everyone who works/ volunteers at the museum has a big heart and are some of the most welcoming people... I have the pleasure of knowing. Going to Iroquois Indian Museum is like getting a big hug for every visit! See More

Plenty for adults and a wonderful children's area in the lower level that was in tune with the spotlight exhibit "WALKING THE STEEL: FROM GIRDER TO GROUND ZERO"

First time visitor to the museum and I loved it. I just found out that I'm part of the Mohawk trying to learn more about the family to see how far back we go.

This gladdens my heart. Being of obvious European ancestry and Cree and Ani Yunwiya blood, I am filled with hope that that the Hodenoshenai ( hoping I spelled that correctly) are taking the necessary ...and needed steps to preserve their identity and culture. O si yo! See More

Two Oneida Artists featured in Minneapolis Exhibit about Endangered Native Women

Oneida artists, Dawn DarkMountain and Karen Ann Hoffman have collaborated on a piece of artwork which will be featured in the nationally juried exhibit, Bring her Home: Stolen Daughters of Turtle Island. The exhibit will be on view February 2 through April 20, 2018 at All My Relations Art Gallery, 1414 E. Franklin Ave, Minneapolis, MN.

The piece, called “Never Alone” is a sculptural Watercolor b...y DarkMountain with Iroquois Raised Beadwork by Hoffman. The two artists created this piece to bring attention to missing and endangered Native Women across the Americas. “Our idea is that these Sisters, whether they still walk this Earth or have taken the Strawberry Trail, are held close in our hearts and our minds. We want them to know that they are always loved, that they are never truly alone.” said the artists. “Never Alone” was awarded a prize for collaborative work at the Eiteljorg Indian Market in 2013 and has been shown in venues the SouthWest and Midwest.
