On July 4, The Iroquois Indian Museum hosts its Early Technology Day – a hands-on learning experience about life in early America from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free with paid admission to the museum.
Visitors can watch and participate in the process of flint knapping (the ancient art of making chipped stone tools), primitive fire making, Atlatl spear throwing and early archery. There will be displays of projectile points, tools and local archaeological finds from the museum’s archaeology department. Have you ever found an artifact? Bring it with you and the museum’s experts will try to identify it for you.
The museum, located at 324 Caverns Road, Howes Cave, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Regular admission is $8 for adults, $6.50 for seniors/students and $5 for children ages 5-12.
