A recent trip to Natchez led us to the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians. There is a very small museum/gift shop on the property. After viewing the items in both, we made the outside trek to the mounds. Overall, I was somewhat disappointed. Just not enough there to see. The site is open everyday except Sunday from 9 -... More

So this place isn't that impressive when you first look at it. The museum is small, but very informative! There is only one hut, but its cool to go inside and see how their houses used to look. And that's about it. So, for a more enjoyable time, I recommend bringing a picnic and eat in little meadow then go... More

My visit gave me an understanding of ancient Natchez Indian culture. There is no admission fee and you cannot complain about the cost.

This is a small and "off the beaten track" Village /musuem ... its worth a visit just to learn abouit the tribe that once lived and roamed in these parst ..sadly they have now been moved elsewhere ... but its important to learn about and honour the orignal settlers of this area. The most interesting thing about this place is... More

Free entry to the grounds, we were the only people there. Two grass covered mounds, a few notice boards with information about what was thought the indians did there but no one really sure! A reconstruction in a sorry state of what was supposed to be an indian straw dwelling, but it was falling down. Not really worth the effort... More

The museum is very tiny, and the information and literature offered is quite limited. I left the exhibit wishing there had been more detailed explanations of the artifacts and traditions they outlined. The exhibits seemed very dated, and the museum overall seemed tired. The grounds were scenic, but the availability of information about the village itself was inconsistent. There was... More

The Natchez Indians were a major part of the history here and any visit to the town should include this museum. You may need to use your imagination a little as it is not huge but it would help to read some history books first to understand the history and the role of the Indians and how and when they... More

The Natchez Indians were decimated when they went to war with the French in 1729. This is a venue for the thoughtful, although there are picnic tables and plenty of space for children to run around. There is also a nature trail which I did not take. The ceremonial mounds (used 1682-1729) and surrounding areas have been turfed and are... More

There are not very many historic sites where you can see traces of the Native Americans but this is one such and very easily accessible, being close to the centre of Natchez. Although there is not a great deal to see, the material is very well displayed and explained. If it had been hard to get to I might have... More

Just a typical small tribe museum and grounds during most of the year. However, you must go during Pow Wow. The grass dancers will make your trip one to remember. Also, the trading post style of vendors lets you see a bit of what old time trading was all about
