The Mariposa is a 'hands-on' museum of artifacts from around the world, located in the center of Peterborough in the historic Baptist Church building. We celebrate other cultures with regional exhibitions, performances and programs. Adults and families can enjoy the museum on their own “hands-on” and can tour the exhibits with visual and audio aides. We have a robust school program that allows children from area schools to come as a class and learn “interactively” about other cultures or cultural holidays. Twice a year we present a Senior Series dedicated to older adults in the region. Interactive exhibits, both rotating and permanent, showcase the creativity of people across cultures through folk arts, folk traditions, and story telling. Performance space encourages sharing cultural legacies such as folkdance, music and rhythm, oral tradition. Performances are given regularly, including on Community Sunday sand First Fridays.
The Mariposa is fully handicap accessible. It is non-profit 501C-3 and governed by a board of directors.
