Second time here. Incredible exhibits. Great for the kids. Observation tower has wonderful views especially in the fall with the foliage. Must see if you are in the area. Plan on spending a lot of time. Discounts for seniors, active military, and coupon attached to the brochure for $8.00 off.

This museum is LARGE and has extremely interesting (if sometimes disjointed) exhibits. It is a research affiliate of the Smithsonian. Entrance fee tops at $20, but there are discounts for seniors, etc. It is a good value...it could easily take a 10-hour day to read all the exhibit descriptions and appreciate the many artifacts. The several movies are very informative.... More

This place is huge. You could easily spend 2 - 3 hours here or more as lots of exhibits plus interactive bits as well. Loved the model bits where you guide yourself through with a telephone. You can listen to what you want to and move through at your own pace. Lots for children as well. Cafe food was reasonable... More

This museum starts at the beginning of the Pequot People and ends with current times. We spent 3 hours enjoying the place. There is much to see. The escalator down into the ice age is the starting point. You can feel the cold of the ice. The Indian Village is amazing. I heard that many of the Indians are casts... More

I was so taken aback when I first entered the Pequot Museum. The amount of knowledge I gained about the Mashantucket Tribe was immense- the content- heavy. I laughed and I cried, I left in awe. The Native Village seemed so real, and the viewing tower is an experience in itself- you can see clear across the county! The whole... More

They tell you it will take at least 2 hours and they are not kidding. This place is big and full of info. Almost too much. By the end my daughter and I were exhausted and a bit overwhelmed. Certainly a wealth of information. Suggest you don't plan to eat here as it is very expensive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this very informative museum near the casino and hotel. We took the trip back in time and learned the history of this tribe.
