It seems that the museum is now closed and the property was sold.

Statement of Purpose:

The Mission of the Somers Mountain Museum of Natural History and Primitive Technology, Inc. is to help foster an understanding of the interconnectedness of the human community and the natural world through the study of nature and the wisdom and experience of our planet's indigenous peoples
- by offering interactive educational programs geared toward specific groups;
- by offering comprehensive, hands-on workshops for both children and adults in the areas of natural history and primitive technology;
- by continuing to preserve and maintain our large collection of Native American artifacts for public display.

Highlights & Collections:

More than a collection of artifacts; Outside are nature trails and examples of Native American structures including a Tipi and a Wigwam. We offer workshops in primitive technology (such as bowmaking, hidetanning, and pottery), and Native American educational programs for schools and youth groups.

Native American artifacts: mostly stone tools, projectile points, and ornaments, but also a lesser number of pots, baskets, utensils, weapons, jewelry, dolls, and clothing items. Also some exhibits of contemporary Native American art and instructional displays of primitive skills.


Permanent Exhibits: Native American artifacts from across the continent, fossils, social school programs.
