Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum was founded in 1990 by Charles “Bud” and Nancy Thompson as an educational and cultural center to connect visitors with Native American culture, past and present, and to encourage respect for our environment. The museum features contemporary arts, historical baskets, pottery, bead and quill work and archaeological artifacts. Visitors can stroll through the arboretum, walk the nature trails in the Medicine Woods and play in the tipi in addition to touring the museum. Our museum store has unique and locally-made gifts in every price range with items that appeal to everyone in the family.
