We visited on a school field trip. The workers were friendly and really involved the kids. It was very hands on and they loved every minute of it. The village really depicts Eastern Woodland Indian life, crafts, and dress. The gift shop was very affordable with items starting at $.50 so every kid could get at least one thing.

This was one of the best trips that we have taken this summer. Our three young grandchildren 10, 8 and 4 spent time with their cousin, Mackenzie as she toured us through this historical village. We learned so much about the culture of the Native Americans. She made things such as their cooking, hunting and even games so interesting to... More

We were staying in Wytheville, VA in July 2016 and were excited to visit this place. Wanted to be in the area for the Pow Wow, however we were in town and decided to visit earlier. Loved the place, the tour was interesting. Thought there was going to be re-enactments with the Native Americans in their culture but we were... More

Had not planned on stopping but saw the brown sign on I-81. Brown usually means a national/federal site but this is not, and not free. Nice gift shop with a real variety of goods, including souvenirs for kids that won't break the bank. As the gal in the gift shop put it, this site gives one pause to consider -... More

I am the type to stop at any highway tourist attraction. There is something that gives me that same vacation feeling as a kid when we went to places like South of the Border. So for me just the stop to a special place makes this a 4 star, since I am so tired of everything looking the same in... More

This place is a must stop for families with kids. A recreated Indian village with flint knapping, pottery and basket making, fire starting and other daily life activities

The village is a recreation based on some nearby archeological finds. The guide we had was gregarious and fun, though the focus was more about the popular stereotype of native Americans rather than a focus on what was known about the local people. The museum is an unsorted collection of locally-found and donated artifacts without any provenance.

Take the tour, check the JEWLERY, I have been here on several trips south and have found unique items that I treasure. I am totally ready to head south to see what is available.

Visited the Wolf Creek Indian Village and Museum on a side trip during a stopover on I-81 in Wytheville, VA. Just off I-77, Exit 58. Was glad we did. The Village is a reconstructed Native American Village based on archaeological digs, of the original village, circa 1480. Both guided and self-guided tours are available from the indoor museum to the... More
