This museum was small but educational and interesting. Tickets were only $4.50 for adults. Indian artifacts inside the museum. Outside, an Indian mound, a small post office building, a small building housing civil war info, and a one room school house. All are from the 1800's. The school house had a guide who provided excellent information.

I like places that have cultural significance. I also like Native American history. This attraction offers an unusual combination of both in a place where Native Americans are seldom recognized for their contributions. It is worth a visit.

A must if you visit this area. Small but has much to offer. Staff personable and knowledgeable. Only drawback is that there are several stairs to the mound and it is not handicapped accessible.

I didn't expect to see anything like this along the coast but it is a good historic site to see while in the area.

The Indian Mound and artifacts were nice to see but what was most interesting for me was the old one-room school house and the civil war room. The school house with all the period furnishings and memorabilia is a local treasure. And, how the local area was involved in the civil war was interesting.

If you are interested in Native American artifacts, this place is a little gem. It looks small, but there is little fluff and a lot of artifacts in each case. The descriptions are just enough and not overwhelming. Most items are from the mound itself or nearby areas and they go way back to the earliest people continuing to more... More

I think it cost me around 6.50 per person to get to see the temple mound museum, as well as the other three. Now when I say the other three, they are small buildings. They are small, one room museums, a post office, a civil war shed, and a schoolhouse. With that said, I think they are just dandy. I... More

Has a 2 room museum and the smallest post office and a school house on property beside the mounds. Just so you know after you climb up to the mound all you see is cutouts of Indians and Indian children. Nothing inside to see. Its just knowing that your on top of several Indians that is significant. The school house,... More
