Mashantucket Pequot Museum at Foxwoods

Mashantucket, CT - Today I took a ride to Foxwoods Casino to get rid of some disposable income...which I did quite nicely. After, I decided to go to the Pequot Museum to lick my wounds. I've wanted to go there for quite some time and today I had that chance.


This is the outside of the Museum and Research Center. The tall structure is an observation tower.


This is the view from the tower of the Foxwoods Resort and Casino, the tall structure to the left of the photo is the MGM Grand Casino which is attached to Foxwoods. Foxwoods is one of the largest Casinos on the world.


A view from away from the windows.


You cannot take photos in the museum except from the tower and this area. In this room are two canoes with mannequins depicting Pequot people, both men and women. They are very lifelike and are in many places in the museum.


This women seems to be saying. "Hey you, no photographs allowed".


You heard her, no photos!

Next time you are in the Southeastern part of the state, drop into the museum and take a look. Give yourself plenty of time, you can spend hours checking things out.

Hi, Bill! I've been to the Mashapequa museum at Foxwoods as a chaperone for a 4th grade field trip, and really enjoy it. The history of these people is amazing. I'm loving clicking around and looking at all your photos.
I've added you to the New England Bloggers listing.

Hi Bill. I just found you through Elizabeth/N.E. Bloggers and I'm thrilled. We're "neighbors"...I live about 15 miles from you and I love Granville. It absolutely reminds me of Vermont, my favorite spot. Looking forward to the Granville Harvest Days Craft Fair. :)

I love your photos, by the way, and I'll definitely be back here regularly! Carol J.
