It's hard to believe that this was started by one mans love for The Native Americans . We were told he opened the museum 30 years ago with these beautiful objects he collected through the years. He did it with his own money- no government...More

Quaint little place. Needs major repair and updating. Nice roadside attraction. Glad they do not charge too much, because it would not be worth more than what they charge.

One of the best Native American museum's that we have visited. The girl at the desk was extremely knowledgeable and interesting to talk too. The exhibits were first rate and well displayed.

Poorly maintained place, especially for charging a fee to go see. Was dark and dingy inside and the actual artifacts that were there were crammed on top of one another.

Nice museum with overview of national native american history. A few items are displayed from the outer banks. Could be hit or miss with kids, some displays are showing some wear. Still worth a visit. They had an outside trail that had some new signs...More
