Start a visit at the Museum and learn the history of the Pamunkey Tribe. Exhibits trace "The People", the natural environment, settlement and subsistence from the Ice Age to today.
Set off from the Tribal Council complex at the edge of the woods is the inconspicuous Pottery School. It has been the home of the Pamunkey Indian Potter's Guild since the early 1930s. The Pamunkey Museum Shop literally glitters with the crafts that attest to the industry of the cooperative's members.
At the Pamunkey Shadfish Hatchery learn about the sustained effort to preserve and restore the American Shadfish, one of the Chesapeake Bay’s indigenous species of fish who travel the Pamunkey River each spring to spawn. Since 1918, the Hatchery has been hatching and releasing fingerling Shad into the River during the spawning season.
