Lenape Medicine Pouches – 11/11/18

The museum’s program focuses on the beliefs of the Lenape Native Americans who inhabited New Jersey at the time the first European settlers arrived.  The presenters will explain the significance of medicine pouches and the special items that the wearer of the pouch might put inside.  Children will make their own pouches to take home. Also included are tours of the restored 1740 farmhouse and demonstrations of 18th century open hearth cooking, using period recipes and techniques. Admission is $4 ages 13 and older; $3 ages 3-12, and free age 2 and younger.
