  • Great place to learn about Native people. Lots of stuff to see, learn, & even hold. Some of the exhibits you can pick up and check it out. One huge downside however is the unisex bathrooms with no way to lock them once you're inside (not safe for ladies) even though they are all single toilet rooms
  • Great place for kids, lots to learn about
  • The Mitchell museum focuses on the culture of the Native American, covering tribes from all regions of the continent of North America. It's fairly small, and they don't have any one thing that really draws you in, but lovers of history or people looking for a productive way to spend an afternoon could get a lot of enjoyment out of this museum.
  • Great exhibits; well worth visiting.
  • Interesting collection attractively displayed, inexpensive admission.
