Poarch Creek Indians Museum & Gift Shop

The Kerretv Cuko (Building of Learning)

Admission-free and open to the public, our museum is the place to experience our Tribe’s history firsthand. Our exhibit showcases how our ancestors—the Muskogee Creek Indians—lived with samples of stoneware, pottery, tools, baskets, and textiles. See what early village life was like for families living and farming together.

The Poarch Creek Indians Museum has examples of baskets produced in the traditional way along with other traditional forms of Creek art, including pottery, textiles, shellwork, copper tooling, and quilting. You’ll also see artifacts that are special to the Poarch Creek Indians specifically, such as original copies of the Petition for Federal Recognition submitted to the United States Department of the Interior in 1980.

Tours guided by our knowledgeable staff are available.
For large group tours, please call the Museum for scheduling. Bus parking is available onsite.
