Museum Information:

Before Europeans set foot upon Mississippi Valley Soil, American Indians developed a vibrant and sophisticated culture in the Memphis area. The C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissaallows visitors to explore the lifeways of these people.

Operated by the University of Memphis, the museum serves as a gateway into understanding the science of archaeology and the interpretation of Native American and traditional cultures of the area. Our museum exhibits interpret the prehistory of the Mid-South, contemporary Southeastern Native Americans, and the African American cultural heritage of the Chucalissa site's landscape.


Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Sunday from 1:00-5:00 pm
