Excellent representation of the Catawba Nation. Native American artwork is incredible and staff is friendly and helpful.

The sign gave hours open & the place was closed when we stopped in. Disappointed there was no one around. Will have to stop in again the next time we are in SC & hopefully it will be open.

The cultural center appears to be starting a museum collection. Two rooms show historical items and could use some additional descriptions. There is a gift shop with souvenirs and snacks. There is a trail at the back of the cultural center that leads you to the river. I recommend taking water and bug spray. The hike is down hill to... More

The Catawba Cultural Center was a truly amazing place to come and see firsthand a piece of local history. They have very cool exhibits to look at. They also have a gift shop with a lot of unique items to look at specific to the Catawba Indian culture. Even if you don't purchase anything, take some time to look through... More

Native American Catawba Cultural is a very interesting subject and the story was not well told here. The Cultural Center needs some more displays to make it more interesting. Just not enough going on to make me want to see again. I understand budgets are tight now a days.
