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.

there are several reasons why moundville is incredible. it's beautiful, for one. it's an incredible archaeological site, for another. and the park has one of the better museums i've seen in a long time! seriously! it's small, but they're managed to do an incredible amount with the space they have. and the park itself is just impressive!

Have been going here for years and love to see the Mounds and all old things and new additions. If you have never been you need to go.

This was an amazing find when I was travelling alone several years ago. Now the museum has been renovated and it is even more interesting. The artifacts found at this site are like none I have ever seen in North America and will blow you away, especially if you are a Native American history buff.

We went down there when my high school football team were in the 2nd round of the playoffs and we used this place as a day excursion. It was very cool!

If you are a student of the North American Mound Culture then this is a must visit. Well developed and a great museum. The park rangers give tours and are very knowledgable. This is often a destination of school trips for kids in the area and some beyond. If you are a teacher interested they offer a package for your... More
