There is no fee for this attraction and that is a fair price. There is a short introduction film in the visitor centre which was probably/hopefully made some years ago. The picture quality is poor and the sound goes up and down. It gives you a bit of some interesting facts and background so if you have made the effort... More

If you are into Mississippi Culture Indian Mounds and are in Natchez, you can add this to your list of places to see. If you are looking for a Grand experience as compared to other Mississippi Culture Mound builders, you will be disappointed.

Wanted to come here and learn a bit more about the Natchez Indians, as most of the stuff around Natchez deals with the antebellum era houses etc. There is a very small museum with limited information, and we encountered 2 staff members who didn't say more than "hello" and "goodbye" to us the entire time we were in there -...

This is a wonderful and educational site. It isn't downtown but is easily located off Hwy. 61 South. Becky was so helpful and we just fell in love with her. Her knowledge and love of her job is evident. Don't miss!!!

We were a little disappointed. The museum is tiny with very few artifacts to see. The recreated hut was very spidery and buggy on the inside. I expected more. My kids were bored.

The Grand Village is actually a state-operated museum with displays, a "touch" table, and a gift shop. They also have A/V about the site. The grounds are quite beautiful, with a nature walk around the mounds and down by St. Catherine Creek. There are no extant buildings, only artifacts (one recreated hut). The Natchez were a fascinating tribe, highly developed... More

A recent trip to Natchez led us to the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians. There is a very small museum/gift shop on the property. After viewing the items in both, we made the outside trek to the mounds. Overall, I was somewhat disappointed. Just not enough there to see. The site is open everyday except Sunday from 9 -... More

So this place isn't that impressive when you first look at it. The museum is small, but very informative! There is only one hut, but its cool to go inside and see how their houses used to look. And that's about it. So, for a more enjoyable time, I recommend bringing a picnic and eat in little meadow then go... More

My visit gave me an understanding of ancient Natchez Indian culture. There is no admission fee and you cannot complain about the cost.
