Regular Site Admission

Visitors will have an opportunity to have an interpreter-guided experience to interact with the tools and objects of the daily life of the people of the prairie.

A travois is a tool constructed of two joined poles lashed together and pulled by a horse or dog. How was this tool suited to the landscape? What did people use the travois to carry and where did they go? Tools and objects range from sewing kits, food supplies, games and toys!

Find out how these tools were used and see a travois and its objects in person in this program.
