Fodor's Expert Review Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center

Ledyard Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

Housed in a large complex 1 mile from Foxwoods, this museum brings to life the history and culture of the Northeastern Woodland tribes in general and the Pequots in particular with exquisite detail. Highlights include views of an 18,000-year-old glacial crevasse, a caribou hunt from 11,000 years ago, and a 17th-century fort. Perhaps most remarkable is a sprawling "immersion environment": a 16th-century village with more than 50 life-size figures and real smells and sounds. Audio devices provide detailed information about the sights. A full-service restaurant offers both Native and traditional American cuisine.
