  • Had a blast! Very informative on the Mississippi Valley Tribes, especially the Chactaw. The nature trails are great too. Can't wait to return.
  • Staff is a true slice of southern hospitality; These are University of Memphis workers. Awesome eye opening exhibits as well.
  • Very interesting and important site. Talk to the staff -very knowledgeable. Great gift shop too.
  • Very disappointed. Wouldn't ever go back again! Thought it was going to be a museum and have much to look at. They only had one thing....
  • We put the above address in the sat Nav and ended up in a very scared neighbourhood!!! It wasn't at the above where we ended up. 😳
