About Us

“To preserve and perpetuate the history, culture, and stories of the Cherokee people”

To accomplish this mission, the Museum of the Cherokee People maintains a permanent exhibit, extensive artifact collection, archives, education programs, artist series, and a museum store. Sales from this store help carry out our mission of the Museum. In fact, more than 75% of the Museum’s budget comes from ticket sales and museum store sales alone.

Thanks for your support!

The museum is a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status, and it operates self-sufficiently.
