Museum of the Cherokee Indian

Founded in 1948, the Museum of the Cherokee Indian is one of the oldest history museums in Western North Carolina and is the repository of a vast collection of artifacts that document the history and culture of the Cherokee. In 1998, the Museum boldly reinvented itself, opening a 12,000 square foot exhibit gallery that successfully integrates artifacts with state-of-the-art technology.
