This should be a must see for anyone visiting for the Cherokee National Holiday. With the museum being free and vendors presenting their native american wares, this makes it one of the best attractions during the labor day festivities.

Sunday is less crowded if you are looking to not have to fight the crowds. The guided tour does cost $2.00 per adult and children are free, but is well worth it. From stickball, to blow darts, to flint knapping demonstrations, the tour provides a once in a lifetime experience!

When you visit the Cherokee heritage center, you can't help but fall in love with our heritage. There's no guessing if the history here is correct. It's FACT.
EVERY family should visit this place.

I made it to the Cherokee Heritage Center and Museum during its anniversary. The museum is a definite must see. It does a great job of depicting the Trail of Tears by using several visual methods through art, writing, maps, textual and sculptures. My children and I learned a lot from the unfortunate history lesson, which also covered the impact on several tribes such as the Choctaw, Muskogee, and Chickasaw tribes.

Trail of Tears exhibit is a must see. Nice presentation on treaties, life before treaties breaking, land/property theft, and the relocation of several native american tribes. The losses; beginning new settlements. There's also an art gallery, gift shop, picnic grounds.
Only way to see the village is on a guided tour. We didn't have the time to wait for the next one, Otherwise, I would give it a higher rating.

This is a must see ! My husbands family is Cherokee and we enjoyed everything this place has to offer. The history is well represented and there is so much to learn. The Trail of Tears exhibit is very informative. We have small children and they really enjoyed the village from the 1800's. We will visit again!
