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.

Old Indian digs are as cool as they sound, and there us no better way to learn history than walking around feeling like part of it

I was surprised and impressed by the sophisticated design of the stockade around the village. The original stockade was a semicircle, with both ends on the Ohio River. I walked out to the large mound in the center of the site (about a 10 minute walk), and from there you can see much of the village site. The other mounds... More

Lady at gift shop saw and asked were he found and we told her on the trails. She told him very rudely you can't... More
