My third grader studied Angel Mounds at school and was excited to hear it was just a few minutes from her cousin's house. We spent about 90 min or two hours total...it was quick, but met our objectives. Because we are members at the Indiana State Museum, we just showed that membership card and did not have to pay additional... More

We enjoyed this place, the museum is interesting for all ages, but oriented towards kids, the site is large and fun to explore on foot. The museum and a short paved walkway leads across a bridge to a good view of the mounds and 'slough', accessible for wheelchairs and challenged walkers, but the bulk of the site is only accessible...

That's really a amazing place. The view is so beautiful, the only thing we regrets is we went there too late. It closed at 5. If we have enough time, we can go far.

The museum was excellent. Very well done. The outside was lacking signage and was disappointing. Need to make a path so as not to get muddy and slip on wet grass.

It is full of interesting artifacts and the mounds are a site worth seeing. It is self guided so you can go at your own pace. I would not recommend it for small children unless they have a special event going on there; not much to interest them.

The museum holds the history and archeology information about the mounds, home of the Mounds builders from about 1000 AD. Outside are trails that encompass the mounds, as well a recreation of a portion of what the village would have looked like when the People inhabited the area.

We've actually seen this site mentioned in museums in different states and it is kind of neat to think that it is close to home. However, the indoor exhibition was not that informative and really for children, and didn't include artifacts excavated, which are apparently housed by Indiana University, which is several hours away. Outside - there are some mounds... More

We were there last summer....I'm late writing the review. We enjoyed learning about the prehistoric Native Americans. Very interesting, very enjoyable.

We were disappointed the Native American Days festival was cancelled. However, we enjoyed the museum and walking to see the mounds. If you are planning to go, check their website www.angelmounds.org to see if there are any planned events. Still interesting, anyway. Rates in September were: Adults $5.00 Seniors (60+) $4.00 Children (3-12) $2.00 Children (2 & under) FREE

I work for the State Historic sites and travel to them occasionally. This site is very informative about the Indian Mounds built by the early Indians of Indiana along the Ohio River.
