Moundville had the largest population in North Anerica at one time. Great museum with artifacts. Clean park with a lot to offer.

The museum entry pavilion shows a 15 minute video which is very instructive on the history of the people who originally occupied the Moundville site. At the back end of the complex is a very nice museum which showcases some of the archaeological finds that have been extracted from the site. Video exhibits, a gift store, and a small cafeteria...

We spent a lovely April morning and early afternoon at this Park. We happened to hit it on a mid-week day when there were only two other visitors there, and i know that getting there when buses of school children are present can make it a totally different experience. After viewing the introductory film, we got into a long conversation... More

Gorgeous place! The museum only took about 45 minutes and we read everything. There is a self-guided tour that involves calling a phone number. They tell you all kinds of interesting things about Moundville like what the mounds are for and how life was there. We climbed two of the mounds and there are lots of steps with a gorgeous... More

While this was an interesting place to visit, there wasn't enough there to truly feed our interest. Beyond climbing up the two mounds for the view, watching a short video that basically said we know very little about this place and the people who created it and visiting the small museum there really wasn't much else. In and out in... More

Usually cost $10 per person or $6 group rate to see the 20+ Indian Mounds and cool Museum here, but we took a group of 22 free as part of the Smithsonian Magazines Museum Day Live event which happens one Saturday a year at museum all across the USA. I read one negative report about this park for entertaining kids,... More

Moundville State Park is basically a series of Indian Mounds built by native Americans long ago. It is a one way road approximately one mile with a few stops along the way. You can climb the Temple Mound and get a god view of how it must have looked years ago. A trail thru the woods at the base of... More

These Goldwing motorcycles were out again and headed down a shady old Hwy 11 en route to Moundville. We had planned to eat at Jim N Nicks in Tuscaloosa so I took out my Alabama book and looked up an interesting site to see along the way. Some of our group had seen the mound over in the Natchez, Ms... More
