Our visit to the museum includes a one-hour docent-led tour and then a free hour to look around on your own. The museum is set up as a functioning Pequot village with mannequins portraying every-day life at the time of first contact with Europeans: a giant walk-through diorama. There is a small fortified area representing palisade protection in time of war. There are also galleries showing artifacts and Pequot tribal history.
