The Frisco Native American Museum was excellent. It appears to be very small from the street but is very deep. Many tribes are represented and the person we spoke with (I believe she is the curator or the assistant curator) was very helpful to adults...More

This place is worth the visit if you're staying in the area. Admission was a bit under $6 for adults which isn't too bad. There's a trail behind the building that's free, and although it's self-guided and kind of confusing with little to see, it...More

We enjoyed our visit to the Native American Museum. I always wondered - why here? Many native Americans lived on the Outer Banks before colonization

Quaint little place. Needs major repair and updating. Nice roadside attraction. Glad they do not charge too much, because it would not be worth more than what they charge.

Though the museum does have some interesting artifacts and items to see, it doesn't focus much on the local tribes of the area. The museum itself is pretty shabby, ie artifacts displayed in an old Timex watch case?? Information about what you are looking at...More

This is small Native American museum that you really should stop by and visit. A man started this collection many years ago and has built it abundantly. There are many tribes represented, a code talker display, a long house and trail and many more displays....More

One of the best Native American museum's that we have visited. The girl at the desk was extremely knowledgeable and interesting to talk too. The exhibits were first rate and well displayed.
