Howes Cave, New York is a bit off of the beaten path, somewhere northwest of

Albany, in the heart of Iroquois Country. Ancient caves in the area invite ama-

teur spelunkers to explore without any equipment at all. Howes Cave also is

home to the Iroquois Indian Museum, an educational place that fosters under-

standing of the Iroquois culture through art.

The museum is a longhouse that recalls the traditional Iroquois longhouse of

elm bark found in the area over 400 years ago. It houses perhaps the finest col-

lection of contemporary Iroquois art found anywhere, as well as an extensive

historic collection. It is also home to a library containing original documents,

some of which date to the 1600’s.

Surrounding the museum is a 45 acre nature park where you are introduced to

the Iroquois view of nature, including Mother Earth, Elder Brother Sun, and

the three sisters, Corn, Beans and Squash.

Guided and self guided tours take visitors through

stream and river, through shagbark hickory

stands, and fields of wildflowers, where you might

encounter deer, raccoon, woodchucks or an occa-

sional beaver.

A trip to Iroquois country and to the Iroquois

Indian Museum is a rewarding experience, and is

one of our favorite places.

The Iroquois Indian Museum is situated in a traditional

longhouse
