The Mariposa is a treasure trove of cultural knowledge and a really wonderful resource to the community. I have been impressed with all of the wonderful events they put on, and wish I could visit more often!

I have attended several events at the Mariposa Museum such as: People Power - the overthrow of Marcos in the Philippines; Philippine Dance and Music; and Iskwelahang Pilipino Rondalla Ensemble.
The Museum provided me with a great opportunity to: relive the past, exchanged views with the other
audience and participants, enjoy Filipino native foods; gave me an excellent atmosphere of connection/ or reconnection to my past, present and future. The place and the events, were very enriching, informative and original. Above all it gave me a high sense of pride specially in overthrowing a dictator through a peaceful means "People Power." And Filipinos are special and beautiful.... The people are very welcoming, organized, and mission oriented. I am delighted that with Mariposa's contiuned existence, my family and I can always come back to attend any events lined up for showing. I would invite my friends to come and visit Mariposa Museum - great place, events and performance.

I recently attended the Mariposa for a story-telling evening. It was both metaphorically and literally a warm hour out of the winter cold, listening to Dylan Thomas' Christmas story in Wales, followed by warm cider and cookies. Regardless of event, perhaps the most appealing thing about the Mariposa is the warmth provided by the physical nature of the building. Upon entering, one is surrounded by the pleasing tones, colors, and textures of the myriad cultural artefacts and objects on display. And the staff are uncommonly warm.

The staff at the Mariposa are committed, passionate, imaginative and informed. I have worked as a volunteer on one program and attended many others -- each time impressed with the quality of information presented, enthusiasm of volunteers, and number of people attending the events. The Mariposa brings the world and a diversity of cultures to an otherwise very homogenous region and provides a very important educational and enjoyable sevice.

my own life through attending events and learning about different cultures and their customs. Most recently I attended two holiday events: a festival of lights (celebrations from around the world) and a reading of "A Christmas Memory" and "A Child's Christmas in Wales." Both events were extremely well attended and very interesting.

The Museum is a magical place. I am a doll lover and I love that this collection contains so many dolls from around the world as part of its fabulous collection. Whenever you want to feel part of something bigger than yourself all you have to do is walk in the door and you are transported.

I was an international student in 2004 when i had the opportunity to visit the museum. The experience that Mariposa Museum has broaden my curiosity to expand my interest in learning about other countries. They not only have the paraphernalia's/artifacts from different countries they visited..or featured, they have write ups/books of wide array of resources.

Being a student away from home, i felt so at home finding a place like this -which reminded me that we are all a piece of a big tapestry of people living in this creative world...and everywhere people has stories of their own that shows their own unique culture-struggles and success!

I have been in Mariposa while being a student and when i have the chance to be in the USA, i put it in my agenda to see this beautiful -enriched place because of the way they reach out to people from all over the world.

Yes i have known the people behind the Museum and have seen their passion in bringing cultures from all over the world and being true to their vision..."if we know and understand others beyond our borders, peace is bridged and mutual respect is accorded to everyone despite differences..."

I believe they are doing great in getting the participation of their stakeholders from guests, community both local and international to their boards-friends and colleagues ...and they have put in every way possible their suggestions and comments BECAUSE each visit i made-there has been something new added and improvements made!

Every town should have a Mariposa Museum & World Culture center! For many people, especially children, this is the closest they will come to experiencing another culture in its "truest" form. With many stereotypes and so much false information floating around in the media it's important to me that cultures are represented in a positive and non-generalizing light, which is exactly what the Mariposa does! Through artifacts, performances and many other interactive ways of learning, the Mariposa provides an environment that celebrates the beauty of cultural variation and opens the minds of young and seasoned generations alike...if you are in the area be sure you don't miss the unique opportunity to experience what the Mariposa is doing*

The Great!

...the way it speaks to the youth. The best way to support cultural diversity is to educate our children on the differences AND similarities between cultures. Mariposa makes culturally relative information available to people in a fun and engaging way. It provides the opportunity for children to be introduced to cultural vaiation at a young age, when they're minds are eager to learn and have not been completely filled with nonsense so often attached to different cultures.

...attempt to reproduce it in other towns around the country! What the Mariposa is doing (spreading cultural knowledge in a positive way) is much needed in the US, a country where many people I know have trouble relating to people from different cultures simply because they fear the unknown.

The Mariposa is one of the cornerstones of Peterborough. In its' short time, it has established itself as a local leader in ethnic and global education. When you walk into the museum, it's like walking into another country (s) of beauty. The lectures are always interesting and the classes very good. We can learn much from what the Mariposa has to offer. We are extremely fortunate to have such a place in our community.

My musical groups have performed at the Mariposa numerous times. It's a great place to play--the wonderful environment of art and artifacts within those walls, and the layout of the structure itself inspires creativity and attentiveness for both performers and listeners, and the folks there that we've worked with have been helpful and welcoming.
