Tomaquag Museum was first founded as the Tomaquag Indian Memorial Museum by archaeologist Eva Butler and Narragansett/Pokanoket Wampanoag historian and educator Mary E. Glasko. It opened its doors in 1958 and has moved locations throughout the years.
The Tomaquag Museum now resides in Exeter, RI, and acts as an indigenous cultural education center that seeks to engage its visitors with cultural knowledge and to broaden their perspective and attitudes about Indigenous Cultures.
The Mission of Tomaquag Museum is to educate the public and promote thoughtful dialogue regarding Indigenous history, culture, arts, and Mother Earth and connect to Native issues of today.
