"The Indian Museum of the Carolinas seeks to increase public awareness of past and present native cultures and to further research archaeology in North and South Carolina. Emphasis is placed on the early Indians of the southeastern United States including the Cherokee, Coharie, Tuscarora, Waccamaw-Siouan, Catawba, and Lumbee, although exhibits feature artifacts and information from other parts of the country and Mesoamerica. The permanent collection contains over 200,000 artifacts, some more than 10,000 years old, and features pottery, tools and weapons, jewelry and costume, a dugout canoe, and contemporary art."

The museum is located at 607 Turnpike Road in Laurinburg. The telephone number is (910) 276-5880. Admission is free.
