New to the area decided to go to the Nanticoke Indian Museum. While it is small - use to be a (2) room school house the docents were friendly and very informative. Would take out of town guest there in the future. Would also recommend attending the Pow Wow and we aren't Indian.

From the outside you would not expect such an outstanding collection of local and national Native American artifacts. And the two curators were well informed and patiently answered all my questions. I learned a great deal. If you are interested in the history of coastal Delaware and/or Native American culture, this is worth the visit.

Great piece of local history. My grandson was amazed and learned so much about our local history. Learning about the Nanticokes dispelled a lot of preconceived notions he had about Indians

My family and I went to the Powwow over the weekend and had a great time. The owners of the ground do a amazing job with the up keep. They are to be commended for all their hard work. I talked to one of the grandchildren they are wonderful. I hope they don't mind me putting this comment out here,... More

Lots of personal attention by local Nanticokes who are very proud of their heritage. Second weekend in September is their annual pow wow.
