If you have any interest in history you will have an incredible time. We Loved seeing the amazing artifacts at the museum. It was also a short walk to see the mounds (it was hot outside) They offered a magnificent view of the area. There was a great little nature trail in the shade that went by the river and looped around the park. We had an excellent time and the young lady who worked there was a pleasure to talk to. It wasn't busy and we had a good time talking to her and asking her questions. Overall a great experience. I imagine Autumn would be the best time to visit due to the Georgia heat but we had an amazing time regardless.

Very educational. Very fun. Takes you back to time when Indians buried their dead here. Lots of artifacts and a nice museum.

My husband and I took a morning to go up the road to visit Etowah Indian Mounds. We've started to check out the Ga State parks and this was next on our list. I thought this would be just putting a check mark by the name but, boy, was i wrong! We went around the middle of November, the leaves were still very pretty and the day was chilly but sunny. The museum is well laid out and gives easy and interesting info about the indians that lived here. The mounds are impressive and the walk by the Etowah River and along the perimeter led to some interesting observations as to the life of these long ago Ga inhabitants. This is a lovey use of a few hours.

Though we’ve lived nearby for years, we had never been to the Etowah Indian Mounds until one weekend in May. It was a nice, if rather small, museum with surrounding mounds of various sizes. If you’re interested in Native American culture in GA, this trip will provide a nice introduction.

The Etowah site was occupied at three different times from 1000 to 1550. It was visited by Hernando de Soto in 1540. It's a very important prehistoric site. The mounds in their own right are worth seeing, and the museum contains a number of artifacts and models which give insight into that culture and their way of life. With the mounds and the fishing weir, the site provides a fascinating study of an early society which depended on hunting, fishing, and agriculture.
