  • Very deep in history of Murphy and western NC. The staff was really helpful and passionate. Worth the stop.
  • Very friendly and helpful guide. Great conversation and information about the artifacts. Well worth the $3.00 admission. Allow 1.5 hours to view all items.
  • Nice small museum but informative
  • Some of the best Cherokee history I have found
  • Rude woman and not friendly. Suggest going to an alternative historical site. Zero stars.
