    Foxwoods itself is bland and industrial -- but this little museum is a gem -- and should be a mandatory stop for anyone that goes to the casino. The Mashantucket Pequot have put together a worthy muse...  more »

    Easy to get to (we used shuttle from the Fox Tower) and easy to get back - just tell them at the front desk you need a shuttle and one shows up! The Museum is beautiful and kept in excellent condition...  more »

    I had an amazing time here! I took my family here for the first time because my wife loves history, especially native American history. We bought a membership immediately because I knew we would be back. Also, because we went on this particular weekend, they had a special members only tour of the archeology lab. It was definitely interesting! The exhibits are so lifelike and really paint a vivid picture of the every day lives of the Pequot Indians during that time. If you have the opportunity to visit, do it and get a membership, because it make take two or three trips to experience everything and see everything.

    I came here today with family to experience the 17th Century Encampment special program that the museum was holding, and also toured the museum for the first time. I'm having a wonderful time! Everyone is so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We're about to go up into the tower part (very excited!) I've learned so much, but definitely will be coming back to finish reading the rest of the placards and watch all the movies :) ps, my father just bought a membership! Definitely recommend this for a fun outing!!

    I love spending time at the Pequot Museum. Today is an educational pow wow that is held each July. Fantastic energy and Un entertainment.

    Enjoyed the thoroughness of the exhibits. A lot to learn about pre-colonial life along the Atlantic.

    Amazing museum. I can spend a day there once a month. I esp. like the giant walk-through diorama room. Works class!!! I wish only the the museum was even larger!!
