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.

I love, love, love, this museum. It's the largest Native American museum in the world. Literally, even the Smithsonian's Native American branch in the National Mall doesn't have half as much stuff. I've been to both, so that's not from an ad or anything.They had to close for the winter due to financial issues, but they're opening up again in... More

This is one of my favorite museums. It's set up nicely to encourage one to walk as a journey through time (but go through it however you like). The exhibits and artifacts are very interesting an accompanied by educational information that captures the attention. The recreated village is a marvel! I walked through it many times and kept finding additional... More

This is a very well done museum. I'm surprised more people don't take advantage of it. Very interesting and well laid out with a nice mix of short movies and exhibits.
