Wow, we really enjoyed our visit to this great historical site. Learned a lot about the history of this site and the native american inhabitants dating back to 1100AD. The gentleman at the office was very interesting, helpful and informative. A video recounts the story and history of the site. The museum is very nice and has a large collection... More

I live in Tuscaloosa and Moundville is on my standard list of "where to take out-of-town visitors." That means I've been there more than once. When visiting the southeast U.S., maybe experiencing evidence of inhabitants from 1000 years ago might not seem the most obvious choice. But, if you miss Moundville, you miss a profoundly stimulating and enjoyable experience. From... More

What was America like thousands of years ago. Who were the indigenous people? How did they live? These questions are answered at one of the most unique sites that preserves Native American history.

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

Visited several years ago and very impressed with history and museum. Reasonable priced for museum and very clean. Lucked up and got to go to annual festival and very well organized and informative.

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
