  • Spent several hours here and enjoyed every minute. We had a wonderful lunch of buffalo tacos on fried bread, listened to a motivational speaker in the theater, participated in the stomp dance demonstration in the village, toured the museum, fed the catfish in the pond and bought some beautiful turquoise jewelry in the gift shop, all the while learning so much about the Chickasaw culture. I love the architecture, this is a beautiful and serene place. Everyone working there is so kind. The museum is VERY interactive and the displays are top notch. One of the best museums I have been too. Only problem is there is so much to see!! We need to go back!!!
  • WONDERFUL enrichment place, please bring your family! I also love coming here because of the people they have just making things in the hallway. As well as beautiful gardens in the back although they are a little overgrown they're still pretty and the bridge and the village that they have set up there! I enjoyed a wonderful lunch as much as I did feeding the turtles and big catfish!
