Visit the Pequot Museum for a unique chance to experience Native American and European life in the 17th Century. Native, English, Dutch, and French reenactors will portray different aspects of daily life and visitors are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities including wampum making, cooking, militia drills, cannon drills, basket making, potter, archery, lacrosse, children’s games and much more.

There will also be live cooking demonstrations, a stone tool workshop where visitors can make their own arrowheads, and special food dishes available in the museum restaurant. Learn how to make an arrow, corn husk dolls, dip candles, and see how pottery was made three hundred years ago.
