Mt Kearsarge Indian Museum
A respect for the earth and all living things is central to the Native American way of life and this is reflected throughout Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum. Situated on 12.5-acres, MKIM is just 1 mile up Kearsarge Mountain Road in Warner, NH. Outdoors you will find the Medicine Wood Trail, the Betsy Janeway Arboretum and activity area with spectacular view of the Mink Hills.
Inside the Museum exhibits allow visitors to travel through time and space – displaying artifacts and presenting information on prehistoric to contemporary Native Americans from every corner of the North American continent. MKIM is always adding to and changing exhibits. This, along with workshops, lectures and special events, gives visitors a reason to return often. MKIM – one circle, 1000 stories. Experience it!
