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.

The Angel Mounds State Historic Site is one of SW Indiana's best kept secrets. The Interpretive Museum is an architectural feat and is used for other occasions such as Farm Days and Native American Days. The Mounds are amazing to walk around and we have been there in the evenings for meteor showers and other special events.

Huge area, lost civilization, tour the museum first and then head out for your self guided tour. Bring your imagination. Anyone under 10 would probably not get the enormity of the community that once thrived there.

Angel Mounds is a fascinating area of Indiana history. The information center was interesting telling of the Indians who lived here. We were eager to walk the grounds and see how it was preserved and shared with the public. However the walking tour was disappointing. It is self guided (with a map and arrows around the grounds pointing where to... More

I've been to a few mounds sites. This is one of the largest in the Midwest. I'm glad they're still here. Walking the site was interesting. Imagining what it looked like while people lived there was fun. There's very little signage. There should be a lot more than the trifold brochure they give you. I also wish the museum was... More

This was our fifth mounds site in three days, and it was very informative. Lots of information in the museum; not so much along the path of the actual site.
