It was ok.

It was pretty typical. The teepees were interesting but it was hot and it was just average. Nothing spectacular. I kind of thought there would have been more.

I used to travel to Natchez on a weekly basis and I would always look for things to do. I found this and decided to go. The museum is good and the grounds are good, but what I really enjoyed was the walking trail at the back of the property.

The visitors center has a small museum and some items for children to touch. The film, as others have said, is old and of poor sound quality. We walked the trail around the mounds and read a few interpretive signs. Other than that, there is not much else to see here. This free site might be worth a quick stop... More

The museum was interesting to visit. and the displays are informative. We walked around the grounds and viewed the mounds. I understand that there are hands on demonstrations at times, but there were none when we visited.

The film is a bit outdated looking and the sound is not great, but it has good information. There are artifacts found at the mounds displayed along with Native crafts and jewelry that you could purchase. The mounds are in a great field behind the visitor center and there is a hiking trail, so you can spend a couple of... More

There is ample parking in the shade and it's just a short walk from there to the Visitor Centre. The staff were very friendly and answered our questions knowledgeably. We watched a short film describing the life of the Natchez Indians and what happened to them then spent some time looking and touching the various exhibits. The rest of the... More

We visited a couple of days ago and were not at all let down. Enjoyed the video and the artifact displays. How about those designs on the pottery? Cool isn't it? Took a walk outside to all of the points, reading the many information plaques along the way. Took a bunch of photos too. Thanks for the neat experience.

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.
