  • The ONLY 'Museum' I have ever visited where the 'exhibits' are ALIVE. There are Living First Nation People working there. Therefore it is SURELY a 'Cultural Centre'.? The First Nation People haven't gone away you know? They are NOT 'history'. Surreal. 5 Stars for the Patience of the Stuff. They are wonderful. Inspirational to those of us in Ireland who need to Learn Patience. 😔😔😔😔
  • Very nice view of ancient Native American grounds. Great nature walk. Informative displays and a good video show.
  • Had a blast! Very informative on the Mississippi Valley Tribes, especially the Chactaw. The nature trails are great too. Can't wait to return.
  • Very interesting! Great way to find out about Memphis!
  • Fun way to spend an afternoon!
