The Cherokee museum was very interesting. It had many of the stories that have been passed down through the generations of Native Americans.

Have been wanting to go here and finally did. It was very informative. Very well planned out and very detailed. It is a must see for anyone interested in the Cherokee Heritage.

Definitely a good spot for history buffs such as myself, you will learn a lot not only about culture but about the history of the Cherokee.
