The Museum of the American Indian
Located in Marin County and situated on a site of an actual Miwok Village, the Museum is dedicated to providing the people of Northern California with programs and exhibits that deepen understanding and appreciation of Native American cultures.
The Museum gallery is home to a permanent collection of exhibits, as well as displaying new and rotating exhibits of Native American cultures.
We provide core programming classes that explore the history and culture of Native Americans in California and other regions in Marin and beyond.
A gathering place year-round, the Museum and surrounding park are areas for lectures, poetry readings, workshops, and hands-on activities.
Our members, volunteers and docents participate in special exhibits, cultural programs, lecture series, camps and school field trips.
What people are saying…
a wonderful space to be soothed as an adult. And children love the museum. It is a very special area with a small creek running through it.…
Amazing tours and crafts for children. A beautiful way to teach reverence, respect for nature, and a spiritually alive and grounded culture.
Let us give rise to education about the history of the Native American People and their beautiful way of life.
