My fiance and I strolled through this museum during one of our visits to Mount Pleasant. When we arrived we soon discovered we were the only people (other than the workers) in the building. This made the life-sized figures in the museum a little eerie. Despite that aspect, I really felt as though I learned a lot about the tribe... More

My wife and I visited this museum on a Sunday in September. We were looking for something to do and we are both fans of museums. The exhibits were quite fascinating and it was worth the price of admission. If you want the place to yourself Sunday seems a good time to go as there was only one other group... More

Easy way to learn about the history of the Chippewa nation. Many artifacts and easy to read copies of documents, with audio and video presentations, too. Some absolutely amazing examples of Indian beadwork, basket-making and carving on display.

A pamphlet was in our hotel. It seemed very interesting. We truly enjoyed the visit. The layout is very good. You can appreciate the history lesson about the Native Americans. It is well worth the visit.

I really enjoyed this place! Went there on a Monday for a group tour. I was told the tour would last about an hour and it ended up being an hour and fifteen minutes... an awesome deal for the price we paid! Also... chaperones are free in groups... sweet! The center is really well done; everything is clean and new... More

As a long time resident of Mt. Pleasant this is the local attraction that I want visitors to see. It interprets Native American history and culture broadly through Anishanabe experience and more specifically through the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe experience.

I would have found it more interesting if there was staff on hand through out the tour. There is a plethora of information to read if you have the time. Small children will get bored easily.

This museum is so intersting for its history lessons about the Native Americans in the area. We found it very well done, great up close things to see. Very clean and nicely laid out. We were at the casino and took the shuttle over, it was worth the effort! It really made us understand the Tribes culture and learnings, very... More

This is located just around the block from Soaring Eagle Casino. The casino shuttle will even take you there. You can even use your comp dollars to pay for admission. Only 3.50 for senior citizens. 6.50 adults. If you like history and especially indian america history this is the place to go. It took us only 3 hours to go... More
