This was an excellent place to spend a few hours. Between the museum, the village tour, and the Trail of Tears, it was a wonderful learning experience. Easily handicap accessible and great to learn from actual tribal members.

The Cherokee Heritage Center is a must-visit attraction for anyone visiting the Tahlequah area. It includes the Cherokee National Museum, displays of Cherokee art, a recreation of a pre-contact Cherokee village that you can tour, and special events every so often. If you want to know more about Cherokee history, culture, and art, this is a perfect place to start!

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.
