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.

Have been to multiple reservations on the east coast and this museum is one of the most accurate and informative.

This is perhaps the best Native American museum in America. I have visited similar museums in Washington D.C. and Oklahoma. The Mashantucket Pequot Native American Museum is a must see attraction in the Mystic area. Excellent historical displays presented with interest for children and adults. Don't miss the 185 foot observation tower. Fabulous view of the surrounding area.

Very nice displays and quite educational, for all ages. Alot of Casino goers, pass up the chance to visit the Museum. They are missing out on a well run Museum and the amazing history of this Nation.

Listen, I will admit I am not your typical traveler that when we arrive in the city I am looking for the closest museum. I mean, science and any interactive museum, sure. But, I am ashamed to admit, to just stare at the works of great artists, yeah, not my favorite. That said, we traveled to the Pequot Museum, well,... More

Very special museum which takes a visitor through the history of the Pequot Tribe and their lands from prehistoric to current times. The exhibits are informative but make sure you do not miss the movies and video presentations that are scattered through the museum. The Pequot War is only offered a few times a day. Also be sure to spend... More

I have been to Foxwood's numerous times and never bothered to drive past the casino and visit the Pequot museum while in Mashantucket but recently went to the museum as part of a group and realized that I'd been missing out! It's really very good with a lot of interesting exhibits, short films and displays. There is so much to... More

This is so much better than I had expected. It is very big and you can spend hours here! They had some live exhibits with people and native americans making items as they did in the past. The regular exhibits are a wealth of history and information. Its great for kids.
