Mission Statement
Nestled in the heart of the Everglades on the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation, the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Seminole Indian Museum is home to more than 30,000 unique artifacts, archival items and experiences. Here, one can learn about the Seminole people and their rich cultural and historical ties to the Southeast and Florida, as they have made Big Cypress their home for more thousands of years.

Traveling across the Everglades to the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum at Big Cypress, one is immersed in natural beauty that delights with some of the best examples of flora and fauna. On arrival, a dynamic orientation film provides the historical and cultural backdrop for a visit in the galleries, which showcase rare artifacts and life-sized depictions of traditional Seminole practices in 1890s Florida. In addition to the permanent galleries, the Museum features rotating exhibit spaces that build on relevant topics, featuring a cross section of the thousands of items belonging to the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

Beyond the interior galleries lies a mile-long boardwalk through a natural cypress dome, leading to a Living Village wherein Seminole artisans create and sell the beadwork, basketry, wood carvings and patchwork for which they are world renowned. Visitors can also learn about indigenous plants and their traditional uses by the Seminole.

Built in 1997, the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Seminole Indian Museum is a center for educational and entertainment programs throughout the year including the annual American Indian Arts Celebration (AIAC) in November, rated one of the top 20 events in the Southeast.

We are located just over one hour from the Fort Lauderdale and Naples areas. The drive to Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki is fantastic! One can spot alligators, cattle, cattle egrets, turtles, cara cara, Ibis and various other exotic and wild species. Impress our tour guides and staff with your knowledge of what creatures make the Everglades their home, and be sure to share with us what you saw along the way!
