I was taken copleatly surprise,to expereance the culture of the Mashantucket Pequot American tribes. In the CT. And the North Eastern tribes.how they made canoes from whole trees. How they protected their land.and their family's. And how they cultivated,thier land and grow many crops.they really put a great Museum together. With so real statues. Well worth the price of admission.

More to see than we expected, loved the recreated village and the audio tour. Make sure you go up in the observation tower.there is a nature trail you can walk from the resort to the museum, a very easy hike.
