We invite you to visit the C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa located in T.O.
Fuller State Park in Southwest Memphis. Operated by the University of
Memphis, the museum serves as a gateway into understanding the science of
archaeology and the interpretation of Native Americans who lived on the
site as early as 1500 A.D. as well as 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.

During your visit, you may also experience our certified arboretum, half-mile nature trail,  outdoor picnic area and newly built replica house located where prehistoric Native Americans lived in a similarly built construction over 1000 years ago. Our museum store offers unique apparel,pottery, jewelry and many other items, much of which has been made by Native American artisans.
