We have been going to Foxwoods on + off, since the bingo hall opened. Somehow...we just never went to see the museum. On a recent overnight stay, we had some extra time to kill and went to check it out. It's a very nice attraction, we spent a few hours there, that $20.00 would have lasted 10 mins on a... More

Even though my daughter and I spend a few days in Mystic together every year, this was the first time we visited this museum, and we will definitely be back! The grounds themselves are stunning, absolutely gorgeous. They do an excellent job of maintaining the outside AND inside. There was not a piece of trash anywhere inside or out that... More

We visited the Pequot museum because my daughter's fourth-grade class spent an entire semester learning about Native American history. The museum is beautiful. There is a life-size village that you walk through using hand-held devices which explain each display in the village. It truly brought everything that my daughter learned about to life (e.g. longhouses, sachems, council members, the three... More

as soon as we walked in the door we felt comfortable.. the exhibits were so life like ... the price was good... the employees all were very knowledgeable... we were able to see how they control a fire burn out a piece of wood to make a 10 person canoe.. the movie that was shown, was very emotional to realize...

We like the casinos, and the large selection of restaurants, and the outlets. Large selection of slot machines, and gaming tables.

This museum was exceptional, particularly for the price. On our visit to Mystic, I almost skipped it because the trains weren't add high as some of the other tourism places. It ended up being our favorite. Best native museum I have ever seen. Three village downstairs is exceptional- you feel like you are really there. The whole thing took us... More

I've visited the museum on several occasions and this re-opening proves you can make a good thing better. Exceptional tour guides. Interesting events in progress, such as the canoe burn, terrific exhibits. This is a world class museum not to be missed. The new Pequot Cafe had some delicious offerings. Make sure you try it.
