WBNGTV reported, "Step inside the Susquehanna River Archaeological Center in Waverly and you're taking a trip back to the Native American culture. The museum focuses on its archaeology.

"There's nothing like it for hundreds of miles around here," said Deb Twigg, Executive Director.

From pottery to rock and minerals to the huge Wooley Mammoth Exhibit, there's something for everyone at the SRAC. It's a non-profit and all of the employees are volunteers who love teaching others about the area's history.

"You'll have someone here who will walk you through it all and help you understand who these people were, how they lived and just how amazing they were," said Twigg.

Best of all, it's a true "hands on" experience. Kids who visit will be able to touch nearly fifty of the artifacts.

"We have 20 collections, from all different collectors all over the region from basically Owego to Corning all the way down to Bradford County," said Twigg.

By each collection is a picture of those who donated their items for their families to enjoy for years to come.

There's also a gift shop where visitors can pick up a variety of souvenirs."
