Great place for some history. Brought my kids here to learn a little. Coming to out and stopping at the museum brought back some great memories of people I knew from high school and during my employment on the post office route around Hogansburg back in the 90's. The staff was friendly and they have a craft shop to buy a few things along with some great history books unique to Akwesasne.

I recently used the Cultural Center to conduct an interview for a research project I'm working on. They were very kind and reserved a quick table in the back which was perfect for conducting the interview. I'll keep this location in mind.
