The film is a bit outdated looking and the sound is not great, but it has good information.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.

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
