Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center

Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center is the world's largest and most comprehensive Native American museum and research center offering an array of engaging experiences for young and old, from life-size walk-through dioramas that transport visitors into the past, to changing exhibits and live performances of contemporary arts and cultures. Four full acres of permanents exhibits depict 18,000 years of Native and natural history in thoroughly researched detail, while two libraries, including one for children, offer a diverse selection of materials on the histories and cultures of all Native peoples of the United States and Canada.

Summertime is Time for Adventures!

Join the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center for a Summer of adventure and exploration as you examine the bones of ancient Mammoths and Mastodons, dance at a Powwow Festival, celebrate strawberries or earn your stripes as a Junior Scientist. You’ll become a part of history as you visit the world’s largest Native American museum and walk through an authentic Native American village from the 16th century – among other time-traveling adventures.  Then try your hand at digging for ancient artifacts or creating expressive artwork. Or take a sculpture tour and learn how to track woodland animals. If you’re looking for excitement this summer, you’ve come to the right place! There’s something to do everyday for the whole family. Just ask the Yankee Magazine Travel Guide, which named the Mashantucket Pequot Museum one of the “must see” places in New England.
