Very sad. Looked as if the museum portion hadn't been cleaned in quite a while. Not even vacuumed. The trails to the mounds were not clearly marked and the signs telling about the mounds were in a terrible state. Shame on whoever is in charge...More

Unfortunately, the mounds were flooded when we were there, but the museum was very well done and interesting. When you go, please donate. They are in need of renovations.
