One of the best displays with good descriptions of the past. The models looked real. Pick up the audio that goes with each display. Could have stayed there for hours.

A must visit if you are visiting or staying at Foxwoods Resort or anywhere nearby. We got a $10 discount by showing my hotel room key card. I learned so much about the Pequot natives and the historical educational experience was fascinating.

We took our grand daughter here recently. The entire experience was well worth the admission price. Lots of interesting displays, educational, and awe inspiring. The village exhibit was particularly interesting. It made for a great day trip.

This museum is really amazing. They have created entire villages with life like Native Indians in almost realistic settings. You can actually walk through a village and also learn about their history. I highly recommend it.
