Learn a lot about the cherokee Indians. Just a great to go to learn about everything they did and how they lived and make the things they did to be able to live

Very good, even my teenager said it was his favorite part of our trip! A little odd at the end because it seemed to change in theme (or more accurately become too continuos) and repeat itself, almost as if there was an old part that connected with the new and they didn't close it off? Really liked the souvenirs in... More

Wonderful museum that exceeded our expectations.We happily spent a whole morning here exploring. So much to experience and learn which can be done as an overview or in as much detail as you choose. Well done on so many levels with a well-curated gift shop to enjoy as well.

This museum is a must see if you are in the area. Very informative and family friendly. The exhibits explain the history of the Cherokee Indians in a very true way. We had young children with us but they were able to read and understand each exhibit. The gift shop had a nice selection of souvenirs as well. The cost... More

Interesting museum. Great for family. Nice and clean and air conditioned (a really hot day). We were able to purchase a very nice souvenir jacket on sale.

As a long lost Cherokee, I was hoping to find something I didn't know about the Cherokee's history and culture. The young man at the front desk was so kind! We didn't have cash on hand, but they take all credit cards. The exhibit is modern and technical. I noticed school age children running around being very fascinated about all... More

TL;DR: Rude staff, underwhelming exhibit. If you want to find out more about the Cherokee just save yourself some money and read the Wikipedia page - you'll be better of. When I tried to buy the ticket with a card I was just rudely pointed to the "cash only" sign. Went to the car to get the cash, payed, asked... More
