The hand made, aunthentic baskets, jewelry, and artwork are breathtaking but extremely expensive. Most baskets are hundreds of dollars.

What a bust! We were very disappointed ... there were like eight tent stands with really nothing in them no activity or show. After seeing all the hype, advertising , and ads ... it was truly not as advertised. The indoor center was nice but not much there either. The shops are loaded with Japanese and Chinaman made or Mexican... More

We visited the Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual to see some of the true hand made local items, not some made in China junk.

Very nice things. I bought a book about the Trail of Tears and a vase. I visited in the early 2000's.

If you chose to visit the museum, it is worth the walk across the street to view the beautiful hand made craft items on display. The baskets, pottery, jewelry, pipes and many other crafts are genuine and show off the artistry of the Cherokee. Lovely to look at and admire, if you have the money, I'm sure worth the buy.

Right across the street from the Museum. This building is filled with items made by the Cherokee. LOTS of baskets! Some woodwork, jewelry, and other works of art. Worth a visit.

Well made items - somewhat pricey but genuine items not imitation. Lots of baskets and jewelry. Some books & other less expensive items though. Nice diplay area.
