Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center

The award-winning Pequot Museum, located in an ancient cedar forest minutes away from Foxwoods Resort Casino, is the largest Native American museum in the world. With life-size exhibits, dramatic films, and touch-screen computer programs put the excitement of the past as close as your fingertips. It is an experience the entire family will never forget.

Observe daily life in a recreated 16th-century Pequot village, pre-and post-European contact. Walk among the trees, wigwams, and people who are cooking, talking, weaving, and working. Hear natural sounds and smell the aromas of the woodlands and campfires. Then, learn about the contemporary Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation through photographs, artifacts, maps, and a topographical model of the reservation.

You can also check out Mashantucket history along the path at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center.

While visiting, dine at The Pequot Café which offers a seasonal menu including traditional and contemporary Native American selections and is located atop a balcony overlooking an ancient cedar forest through our breathtaking, glass-enclosed Gathering Space. While they offer many traditional New England foods, their menu is carefully crafted to reflect the flavors of each season following the rhythms of traditional eastern woodland foodways.
