Want a different shopping experience? Then drive on down to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center in Mashantucket, Conn., for their annual Winter Moon Native Market this weekend. Explore the unique arts of the Native Americans, including jewelry, carvings, clothing and stocking stuffers.
Plan to stay the day as the Museum offers interesting experiences for all ages, from life-size walk-through dioramas that transport visitors into the past, to changing exhibits and live performances of contemporary arts and cultures. The Museum's more extensive exhibits tell the tales of 18,000 years of Native and natural history, while their two libraries, including one especially for children, offer a great selection on the histories and cultures of all Native peoples of the United States and Canada.
