SITES FOR ART LOVERS
Cherokee National History MuseumThis museum would be a great place to start your indoctrination to Cherokee country. It explains their origin story, and the trail of tears, and the boarding school era, as well as the code talkers. The art work and artifacts on the first floor are quite lovely. As you walk up the stairs, the murals surround you with their creation story. Housed in the renovated Cherokee National Capitol, the Cherokee National History Museum tells the Cherokee story through immersive exhibits and augmented reality.
Cherokee Nation Spider Gallery
Located in the old Court Mall directly behind the Cherokee Arts Center is the retail Spider Gallery located at 215 S. Muskogee Avenue. The Gallery carries artwork made by Cherokee Artists, many of which are well known and have won numerous awards across the United States.
