This little museum is housed in an 18th century building that was given to the first Wampanoag preacher. Found it on Main Street after some searching in the area and as others have mentioned, it does seem like it could be a private house but do go through the door for a warm welcome. Not many people seem to have... More

After passing this place for years on our yearly trip to Mashpee for the week, we finally stopped in and had a very interesting visit to the Wampanoag Indian Museum. A Wampanoag gave us a tour of the museum and the weetu dwelling & canoe that was outside. The museum tells you the story of the Wampanoag to the present... More

We spoke to the woman who was looking after this building on the day of our visit and she related some very moving history to us. A very moving experience. It is very small set in a cemetery.

There is so much to learn. We had just visited Plymouth plantation too and we were able to tie up some history from both places. That was great

Very small but interesting considering the Wampanoag tribe's role in this country's history. Some archaeological artifacts, pictures of tribe members, and other random pieces of interest. If you're there during the spring check out the stream on the other side of the parking lot where herring go to spawn. Can be a very quick stop if you're looking for a... More
