Learned so much and would love to visit again. We especially love the mask and baskets. Arrows were interesting as were all the games they played. Lovely gift shop with beautiful items to buy.

We arrived late in the afternoon about an hour before closing. The lady at the visitor center said we would not be rushed out if we entered at this time. However, the young man at the ticket desk said they closed promptly at 5. He did adjust our admission price for AARP membership though. We enjoyed looking at and scanning the information of the exhibits, although we didn't have time to read everything as we usually do in a museum. However, I did learn some interesting points about Cherokee history and the Trail of Tears. We also bought some presents for our grandkids in the gift shop, looked at some displays in the lobby, and then left. It really isn't a large museum, but it is well laid out.

My husband who is part Native American and I were dumbstruck by our walk through the museum. The story was well told, the backdrops natural, and the artifacts astonishing. The sound of Native voices in the background were haunting. We were breathless with emotion by the time we got to the mask exhibit and wish we had had the energy to spend more time there.

Great place to visit. We learned a lot about the Cherokee Indian's that we did not learn in school. Lots to read and lean as you go through the museum. A must see and explore when visiting the area. Highly recommend it!

We took a 15 year old to this museum and it was wonderful! The exhibits were life like! We actually thought several were real people! There were artisans demonstrating mask-making and other native crafts in native dress. There was a nice gift shop and the facility was clean and adhered to the Covid-19 protocols. Wonderful experience and we learned a great deal too!
