  • We were offered a discount for our traveling group when we arrived, by a very friendly young lady. She offered us a discount and membership to the Museum which also includes a 20% discount in the gift shop. We enjoyed our self guided tour. I really loved the gift shop. I have been in most gift shops in the area, but the Museums’ gift shop has some unique items I’ve not seen anywhere else. Every staff member we encountered was so helpful. This visit was a real treat and I would definitely recommend.
  • I liked this museum, it's larger than that i expected and the exhibition is nicely displayed. You get a complete story on how history treated the Cherokee, with beautiful stories how the land was formed. This is a great place to take the children. At the end there is a souvenir with reasonable prices. Overall Ill would recommend this museum
