Self-Guided Visit


Great for larger groups (adults, scout groups and homeschoolers only) looking for a cost-effective option. Explore Nowashe Village at your own pace while using your own electronic device to scan QR codes full of informational text, pictures and videos. One educator will be stationed inside the Sachem’s House to provide an in-depth look at a particular learning station (such as Stone Tool Evolution or A Day in the Life), or to answer general questions and to provide a look at real artifacts, hides and pelts, Native baskets, musical instruments and more.

Pricing generally runs $20 per person for adult groups, $15 per child for homeschool and scout groups or similar, and $10 per child for school groups. These rates generally include a snack and craft, but programs are fully customizable and we can often work within a budget.
