Museum of the Cherokee Indian Tours

Museum of the Cherokee Indian
The Museum of the Cherokee Indian is home to vibrant displays that tell the story of the Cherokee people, from their paleo ancestry to their current lifestyles. Far more than an exhibit of artifacts, the museum keeps the tribe’s culture alive through education, events, and traditional gatherings.

The Basics
At the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, learn about the resilient tribe through interactive exhibits, workshops, docent-led activities, and storytelling sessions. Or, get involved by joining a guided nature walk, a music and dance program, or a traditional tribal dinner. To save time at the entrance, buy your ticket online in advance. Register by phone or email for a program or activity—see the museum’s website for details.
