I love this park. It is so peaceful and tells a rich detailed story of native American Heritage and the mississippians.

Very interesting Park with a lot of history. There is also a very informative museum located in the park with historical artifacts. Going on top of the mounds and visiting the museum is pretty much all there to do, but if you are into the past of Native Americans, this would be a great place to visit.

Our family was in Tuscaloosa for our son to visit Alabama. While my wife and son took the tour, my daughter and I were looking for something to do. We wanted to get outside for exercise but also wanted an opportunity to visit something with historical value and this was excellent. The entire site is great. The are places for... More

This was an impromptu stop during a weekend trip. I highly recommend taking time to visit. The first building is not the museum, but is the place to pay the admission fees and view a short overview video. This video really sets the stage for the tour ahead. The attendant will also provide a brochure with information on the audio... More

After recently moving to the area, my husband and I decided to get out on our bikes and doing some exploring. This was a small museum but it was interesting with great displays. The staff was very friendly and the gift shop was a nice addition. The mounds and the surrounding areas are worth seeing. History in any form is... More

A thousand years ago approximately 1/3 of what is now the continental U.S. was part of what archeologists call the Southeast ceremonial complex or the "mound builder culture". Although these native people spoke different languages, they believed in similar ideas of the world, it's creation and appropriate ways to live in it. They built large mounds for ceremonial sites (Cahokia,... More

We have traveled to many mound sites in the southeast and this one was one of the best! The museum has been renovated in recent years. The exhibits are interesting to both adults and children. There are lifesize wax figures as part of the displays. EXCELLENT display of pottery dug from the site along with points and baskets, etc. The... More

Wow, we really enjoyed our visit to this great historical site. Learned a lot about the history of this site and the native american inhabitants dating back to 1100AD. The gentleman at the office was very interesting, helpful and informative. A video recounts the story and history of the site. The museum is very nice and has a large collection... More

I live in Tuscaloosa and Moundville is on my standard list of "where to take out-of-town visitors." That means I've been there more than once. When visiting the southeast U.S., maybe experiencing evidence of inhabitants from 1000 years ago might not seem the most obvious choice. But, if you miss Moundville, you miss a profoundly stimulating and enjoyable experience. From... More

What was America like thousands of years ago. Who were the indigenous people? How did they live? These questions are answered at one of the most unique sites that preserves Native American history.
