never heard of this until we passed thru Alabama and saw it on a list of attractions for Tuscaloosa. Must see it - very different, very quiet, great artifacts of a civilisation i knew nothing about. (modest fee $8)

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

The museum was rebuilt in 2010 and is spectacular. Displays of found artifacts, videos, and lifelike figures give a sense of history. Price is very reasonable.

We've lived in Alabama all our lives and have always wanted to visit. I've got to say that this was quite disappointing. With two children in tow, the entry cost us $28. The kids were excited to arrive, but boredom set in quickly. We climbed the two mounds that you are allowed to climb, ate a picnic lunch beside the... More

I recently moved to the area and wanted to explore around and found Moundville Park. Upon entering you can watch a short video giving you the basic gist of the park and what they think everything means. I enjoyed walking around (although you can easily drive the loop). We went in March so it was a great temperature and not... More

We went here on a beautiful March day not being entirely sure what to expect. It's about an easy 30 minute drive from Tuscaloosa and completely worth the drive. First, there's a small AAA discount on tickets, so whip out your card at the entrance. There are two main areas to stop and park once you get in gate. The... More

We've lived in Alabama for 7 years now and only just visited Moundville Archaeological Park. It never sounded like a place we'd be interested in, but yesterday, while out for a Sunday drive with no particular aim in view, I told my husband to follow the signs for Moundville so we could finally see what it was like. We were... More

While the park is well known to locals and archaeology/anthropology enthusiasts, most visitors are unaware of the park. Every visitor I've taken has been shocked to see the large size and number of hand made mounds. The remodeled museum looks great. The riverside pavilion includes a large kitchen, as well as HVAC and a fireplace. It is a great "and... More
