The sign gave hours open & the place was closed when we stopped in. Disappointed there was no one around. Will have to stop in again the next time we are in SC & hopefully it will be open.

Overall the center is quite interesting. There are many things to learn about the local Native American history and culture. Teenage kids would probably find this interesting but young ones will be bored silly in no time.

The cultural center appears to be starting a museum collection. Two rooms show historical items and could use some additional descriptions. There is a gift shop with souvenirs and snacks. There is a trail at the back of the cultural center that leads you to the river. I recommend taking water and bug spray. The hike is down hill to... More

This is a great place to go. Take the tour to learn about history, I wish they had a four wheel or golf cart the walking will killed your feet.

The Catawba Cultural Center was a truly amazing place to come and see firsthand a piece of local history. They have very cool exhibits to look at. They also have a gift shop with a lot of unique items to look at specific to the Catawba Indian culture. Even if you don't purchase anything, take some time to look through... More

Native American Catawba Cultural is a very interesting subject and the story was not well told here. The Cultural Center needs some more displays to make it more interesting. Just not enough going on to make me want to see again. I understand budgets are tight now a days.

I took my summer campers here last summer (2012). They have a smallish indoor cultural center which is really nice. Gorgeous outdoor walking trails with outdoor exhibits that lead you right to the Catawba River which has breathtaking views. The place is maintained and run by local Catawba ancestors, all are really nice and love to share their rich history... More
