We did like that you could learn some words in the native tongue, but disappointed that there wasn't more to see or at least some hands on things to do. The gift shop was really nice, however, so we did not leave empty-handed.

The sign gave hours open & the place was closed when we stopped in. Disappointed there was no one around. Will have to stop in again the next time we are in SC & hopefully it will be open.

Overall the center is quite interesting. There are many things to learn about the local Native American history and culture. Teenage kids would probably find this interesting but young ones will be bored silly in no time.

The cultural center appears to be starting a museum collection. Two rooms show historical items and could use some additional descriptions. There is a gift shop with souvenirs and snacks. There is a trail at the back of the cultural center that leads you to...More

We had a very nice visit to the Cultural Center. They will customize your tour. We were able to hear some history, sample bread, watch a dance and do some bead work. We will be back.
