Details

Although the Museum is currently closed to the public, visitors from anywhere can now view the permanent and temporary exhibits that help share the Seminole story. 

The walk-thru showcases all of the exhibit spaces within the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum and allows virtual visitors to view the full 17-minute orientation film along with three other shorter films that enhance the visitor experience.  

Exhibit highlights include:

From the Land

Harvests from the land and many parts of animals are used to supply food, clothing, and tools. When items could not be obtained from the Everglades, the Seminoles would trade with a handful of store (trading post) owners.

The Camp

Under the chickee is a glimpse of traditional meal time, where multiple generations gathered around their food. The camp is characterized by numerous chickees, which in Miccosukee means house. In the center of the gallery, three women are busy around a fire preparing the daily meal. This fire, if properly tended to, could last for weeks. A family glides down a quiet stretch of river in their full size dug-out canoe on their way to a trading post.

Mosaic Gallery: Ahfachkee Student Art Exhibit

In this selection of artwork, students used the basic elements of art repeating the likeness of the different artistic styles.

West Gallery: Alligator Wrestling

Explore the deep roots of the Seminole's relationship to alligators. Discover how alligator wrestling took hold and how it helps preserve culture and tradition today. Learn about the biology of an alligator through interactives and watch the incredible skill and techniques of alligator wrestlers on screen.
