About C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa

The C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa, operated by the University of Memphis, is on the grounds of a Mississippian Culture Mound Complex. Exhibits cover Native Americans from prehistory to the present, a hands-on archaeology lab, nature trail and more.

The C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa is a prehistoric American Indian archaeological site dating back to the 15th century.  The site was occupied, abandoned and reoccupied several times throughout its history, spanning from 1000 to 1550 A.D. The museum, named after its founding director, curates an extensive collection of artifacts recovered during a 40-year period of systematic excavations.  The site features a Mississippian mound complex, nature trail and arboretum, hands-on archaeology lab, and exhibits that explore the history and life-ways of Native Americans of the historic and prehistoric southeastern United States.
