Ocmulgee is a great sample of spectacular indian mounds. This site had an underground sacred chamber. This is a great place to better understand the degree of civilization that existed in the Americas before the conquistadores arrived.

We had not heard of this place before, but were just looking for something different to do on a drive between Atlanta & Savannah. The visitors center had a good video and lots of indoor exhibits to learn about what the mounds are & about the ancient people that built them. Was very informative & entertaining. Lots of paved walking... More

The Indian mounds in Macon is a great place to see history, walk on the grounds the Indians in this area did and enjoy the small town of Macon. I have lived here all my life but untill I had children and grandchildren did I really love this place. During the Cherry Blossom week of fun for the family this... More

This is a good place to take a family and learn about the Native culture. It is a good place to have a picnic in the shade and enjoy the scenery. This is a National Historic Site but might soon become a National Park. The only reason I did not give it a 5 rating is because there is no... More

From the excellent museum to the earth lodge and mounds, to the walk along the river, you will learn about the Mississippian way of life (from approximately 700 CE (Common Era), until its decline/evolving into to other Native American tribes. Really good information for the avid history buff and interesting information for those those like to check out "old" things.... More

Very impressive self guided tour. Indoors you will see a short video and many old artifacts. There are many outdoor things to see. Worth a few hours and no admission.

Plenty to see and do here on the many trails, the museum, and the curious Indian mounds. Definitely a great way to spend the day in the Macon area with a family...bring a picnic and plan to do some hiking!

We weren't sure what to expect in our visit. But we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the exhibits, and how removed we felt from still being in the city. The walking tour was well laid out, and easy to get through the various historical sites. Learning of the native american history predating the colonies was extremely interesting.
