Ah-tah-thi-ki Museum

The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum includes a 5,000 square foot exhibit hall that consists of artifacts and cultural displays unique to the Florida Seminole. The exhibits depict the lives of the Seminoles in south Florida during the late 1800s.

Hunting, cooking, travel, marriage, folklore and spiritual beliefs are portrayed. The museum features rare Seminole artifacts on loan from the Smithsonian Institution. These include moccasins and leggings, turtle shell rattles, bracelets and beaded sashes, and medicine baskets. The museum also features exhibits of its own holdings, including Seminole war-period swords and firearms, beaded shoulder bags, and Seminole patchwork. The exhibit gallery also includes user-friendly computers, where visitors can find information on the Seminole Tribe’s rich history and culture. The Legends Theater portrays how legends were passed down from generation to generation
