Excellent interactive exhibits with life size 3D dioramas and artifacts about the Pequot people on the past and continuing through today. The life size village is simply incredible.

The museum takes to a journey of Native American life from beginning to present time. I had a great time. It's worth it. I visited the museum several times.

We have always passed by the signs for this museum and never had the time to stop. So glad we did finally visit. My kids and I spent over three hours looking over exhibits and learning a valuable history lesson at the same time.

Very well done. You think some of the statues are real. It's a great replication of the past days for the Indians.

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?
