This is a beautiful little museum that showcases early Indian artifacts from the area. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the museum is very interesting. It only takes an hour or two to visit and is well worth the time.

On a rainy morning, looking for more of an indoor activity, my husband and I went to the Smoki Museum. It is filled with wonderful Indian artifacts as well as beautiful handmade quilts. An interesting way to spend an hour or two.
