The Etowah Indian Mounds and Museum are a great activity if you want to get out for a little bit and stretch your legs. There is not a huge amount to do other than exploring the mounds and visiting the small museum. Doesn't take a...More

This is a nice and quick (about 1 hour) trip up I-75 from downtown Atlanta and near Cartersville. Yes, it's a field nestled beside a river. Yes, it has three Indian mounds. Yes, I got the sense of the village and the lives that surrounded...More

Great field trip. Students enjoyed an outdoor demonstration of tools and weapons used by first prehistoric people in Georgia. They walked to the top of the mounds on a guided tour. Students also browsed a museum and watched a video.

If you are looking for a days adventure, try walking the grounds of Etowah Indian Mounds. This place is very well-preserved and has a great museum.

Great place to get out, walk around and learn about the Etowah indians of the southestern U.S.. Maybe I'm a bit picky but for me one downside was the movie presentation - it was more about the history of the general indian population of the...More

This is a very cool place, to think that a whole society of people lived here, traded here and thrived here so long ago. It is a very special place for sure. The whole place is a self guided experience, but the person taking your...More
