There is so much to see and do. Be sure to check online for the days and times they are open. The Pequot Cafe serves delicious food and includes some traditional Native-American dishes. If you can make it to the summer encampment it is definitely...More

Well worth a visit. If you have a chance..go!! Love the village that is set up inside of how the Indian people lived. You walk through it. Everything life size. Great exhibits. Would love to go back soon and spend more time here.

I am thinking of the museum as a group destination for our Hadassah women's group. We would like to come off season with about 15 -20 women. We would need a guided tour and lunch and information on transportation if you have any. I was thinking of the charity bus from the casino... Do you think this would be of interest to us?
