  • We came in August, and we could see Indian cherokee, who were able to make us share their way of life and will remove us some preconceived ideas on the Indians. All the Indians did not live in Teepees, in the case of the Cherokee they had houses built of Earth and straw, without door but houses still. We could see how they were making arrows, loved how they played, how he lived, in short a great experience and my 8 year old daughter. Be careful to go during local school holidays because outside there is less activity in the Center, so focus on the days or there are school holidays in the United States knowing that the Center is closed on Sundays.

  • I visited the Cherokee Heritage Center w/ my Dad today. The artwork was gorgeous...such talent. The Trail of Tears exhibit was amazing and so informative, can't believe I've never gone before! We even found some ancestor names on the Petition against the Echota Treaty. The only thing I felt very disheartening was the condition of the homes in the back. These homes have been taken from Tahlequah and rebuilt as a community that is representative of the Indian Culture after arriving in Oklahoma. The houses were aged as expected, but had so much character to them, however.... these houses were so dirty. The floors had not been swept in a very long time and dust was covered all over everything. I don't feel like my Indian ancestors would have let their houses get in that condition. They were a proud people that took care of their possessions. I know this facility has limited resources, but I truly believe that to be a true representative of the Indians of the past, these homes need to be cleaned. That would have gotten the 5th star from me on my rating!
  • Wonderful place to visit and learn our heritage.
  • If you have Cherokee Heritage this is a must-see. Even if you don't the amazing true tell of the Trail of Tears is worth the stop and heartbreaking to hear how this proud people were treated
  • My daughter and I recently visited the Center and were treated so graciously by a highly knowledgeable and caring staff. We received an enormous amount of help with our genealogy research from a true expert in the field. Thank you, Jerry. Can't wait to visit again. The museum is so informative and educational with a great gift shop. The staff is really outstanding.
  • Fun
