There were a lot of really unique items in the gift store. Unfortunately, we heard they will probably be closing soon. Too bad, maybe someone will by it and revitalize it??

This turned out to be a great place to visit. You learn about Native Americans through their museum and the staff. All was very informative. We then went digging for arrowheads and anything else we could find in a large plowed field behind the Village....More

This seemed like a huge tourist trap. What they call a museum is an absolute joke! If it was much smaller it would be a bathroom stall. The gift shop had lots of interesting little trinkets. And I will say that the kid working the...More

We planned a 3 day 2 night trip into Murfreesboro, Arkansas. We thought the kids would really enjoy digging for diamonds and looking for treasure. However, they did not enjoy it as much as we expected. They had much more fun and success digging here...More

This was more like a trading post, there was a self guided tour that we did not go on and an area to look for arrowheads. The lady inside the store was really nice.

The pamphlet says adults are $8 and kids are $4 but it doesn't specify what that includes. I remember when we went into the trading post the buckets for them to dig through were $15-$20 if I remember right.
