Experience the thrill of ziplining at the Foxwoods Resort Casino, taking flight from the rooftop of Fox Tower. Begin at 350 feet (107m) where the staff prepares you for the ride. Receive instruction and equipment, get securely attached to the cable, then take off. Glide for more than one minute, with views that extend to Long Island Sound. Touch down at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum to end your exhilarating ride.

Drove over an hour with a toddler to get to the museum only to find out that they were closed when they should have been open. No signs on the doors, no message when you call them. We called Foxwoods main number and the woman we talked to was very unfriendly and couldn’t understand why they were closed herself. She put us on hold and talked to someone else and came back and said they decided an hour before they were not opening but wouldn’t give us any information nor a discount for a later visit. She just said thank you for visiting Foxwoods and hung up on us. Very unprofessional all around. Will not return.

We went here for the first time on our recent trip to Foxwoods. We were all very impressed with the size and scope of the museum. The exhibits were all top quality, and the recreated village is spectacular. I would definitely recommend spending a few hours here if you are in the area.

This stunning, informative museum traces the history of Native American peoples in New England. There's an incredibly realistic, life-sized recreation of a Pequot village, as well as an observation tower to look over the surrounding lands and gorgeous artwork. The histories exhibits trace back to the Ice Ages and is also incredibly well-researched. This entire museum is amazing, and I learn something new every time I come here.

I take my students to the Mashantucket Pequot Museum every fall. It is an amazing experience for all of them. The exhibits are so well done. My favorite is the Pequot Village. It is very realistic in its sights and sounds. Every time I go, I learn something new. The Ice Age is another wonderful exhibit with the caribou hunt. Seeing the mastadon and dire wolves is quite an experience. I highly recommend this museum to anyone over the age of 8!
