I hope the reviewers who criticized the Grand Village about the condition of the grass hut actually went into the museum and looked at the exhibits and saw the movie. Yes, the film wasn't hi-def quality, but I learned a whole lot of history of which I was unaware. And that's what travel should be about--the learning.

The museum is small but informative; the store had great examples of local Indian basketry. The woman at the museum was really helpful, providing us with lots of literature on the... More

The staff worker was very thoughtful and really liked what she was doing. It was too bad that things from meeting her went downhill. The movie would have been good but they need to improve the sound which was very hard to hear. The volume was up and down through the movie. When we went outside the structures they had... More

The lady working there is so sweet and friendly! The little museum is educational and there was a short little film to watch. The film was really home-movie'ish, but they were obviously on a $0 budget lol. I enjoyed walking around the grounds to see the mounds. They had a replica of a Natchez dwelling, but it was beginning to... More

This is not the most glamorous site in Natchez, but, I suspect, that once it was. The Grand Village consists of a small museum and gift shop. There are two or three historical mounds that were utilized by the Natchez Indians many centuries ago. They were fully excavated a number of decades back and then rebuilt and restored. One of...

Being from Indian descent, I have been fascinated with Indian Tribes. You will want to see the short film. Then go through and see all the artifacts. The last thing is walk outside.

By itself, this won't tell much - you need to have some knowledge of the past and an imagination to understand what was. This is more symbolic than an actual village. The 300th anniversary does little to acknowledge the people who once lived here for many centuries.

Situated outside of town in a small one story building this small exhibition is a good match to viewing the plantation houses nearby such as Melrose. The staff were helpful and showed a film for us and gave maps of the area, available in several languages

Stop while you are here to the visitors center and learn about the first inhabitants of the area - bring the kids along to run off some steam on the trails and roll down the grassy hill. In the spring you might catch a modern native American Pow wow on a weekend in March.

This is a nice , small museum. There is no fee. The employees are friendly and ready to answer questions. We didn't view the video, but checked out the museum and then went to the grounds. There is a structure showing what Natchez shelters looked like and you are welcome to walk around the mounds. There are signs to explain... More
