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.

There were so many things to see and read about that you need the entire day to spend at the museum. It was great to see the tribe clothing for POW WOW. It was just introduced at the wrong time. Maybe it should have been after visiting the village. It was great to learn about the glaciers and the start... More

A great engaging museum. We started with a coupon from Groupon. I researched the reviews and took the recommendation to have a one hour tour. The tour price was reasonable and we would have missed out on all the nuances of the museum. There is a lot of thought, care and symbolism that went into this museum. The tour guide... More

We brought our grandchildren here recently and they loved it! From walking through the Glacial Crevasse, to spending time at the Pequot Village (you can easily spend an hour in this one exhibit) to watching the excellent documentary/movie about the Pequot tribe, there was so much to see the kids did not want to leave. Truthfully, my wife and I... More

After reading all the positive reviews I had high hopes for this museum. What a let down. We paid 20.00 a piece and we both agreed it was a waste of money. I do have to say the facility is really amazing, then it all went down hill. I have been to a wide variety of museums and this one... More

The Pequot Museum has an information center at Foxwoods which some people have mistaken as the Museum. I hope that didn't happen to you. We have the... More

My daughter's school took her here on a trip, and she loved it. So when we decided to spend a weekend in Mystic, we came to the museum too. I am so glad we did. The museum is very engaging. The life size dioramas were fascinating and give you an up close and in person feel. I also loved the... More

Being in a wheelchair doesn't always allow me to go many places e s. This museum is done so well and explains everything so that you can understand the history. It is completely wheelchair accessible.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the end of May at Foxwoods. We enjoyed Foxwoods but the real gem was the museum. Beside the wonderful exhibits and videos of the ways of Pequots, there is a re-creation of a village with life-like models of the Native Americans involved in their everyday activities. This is a massive village that... More

Visited in Washington DC the National Museum of the American Indian ( which was very disappointing) and Plimouth Plantation ( was very interesting and shows the way of life in this age). But this Museum was the best of all of them. You can spend 1/2 a day better a whole day to see and hear everything. They have wonderful... More

We had two hours which was simply not enough. You could easily spend the whole day. This is the largest Native American Museum in the world, set in the beautiful woods of the Pequot Reservation. They had several large rooms of life sized diorama's showing Native American life in different eras, including one whole village. The Pequots have spared no... More
