So much to see in this museum. It was wonderfully displayed and brought the native Mashantucket Pequot way of life back to life.The most impressive section has to be the village scene. Don’t miss out on the observation tower with its spectacular views over the...More

This museum is much more than a collection of artifacts or art - it is a trip back in time that tells the rich history of a people who are still here - alive and well - and the museum shows you why.

We went to the museum on a day when there were no school groups and had a wonderful experience. The Pequot "village" seemed to be a good representation. There were enough explanation placards, videos, dioramas and movies to make it interesting without being overwhelming. It...More

I was surprised at what an interesting and exciting museum this is. It brings to life the culture and history of this important Indian tribe. It also brings to life the atrocities that the Native Americans suffered.
