This reproduction of a clay pipe used to smoke tobacco is one of the many objects that can be seen in the Native American Museum located at 5170 E. Poplar Drive in Dobbs Park, Terre Haute, Ind. Also pictured with the pipes is a twist of dried tobacco.
The Native American Museum is unique in that it is the only museum of its kind to be operated by a city parks department in the Midwest. The museum is also a partner in the Wabash Valley Visions & Voices project. The museum’s collection may be viewed here.
If the winter weather is giving you cabin fever, why not visit the Native American Museum? It’s open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EST).
