Fascinating place of history and the tallest mound in the US. The hike to the top is short and so worth it for the views.

The Grave Creek Mound is a must-see if you are in or near Moundsville. It is very interesting, and best of all, it's free! You can walk to the top of the mound for a great view. The museum is clean and has artifacts from the mound. The exhibits are interesting.

This place is a lot more than I thought it would be! The mound is a wonderful place of history and I was very surprised to find the accompanying museum to be full of fascinating information not only about the mound itself, but about the whole area, including prehistoric times! They have a lot of great fossils and Indian arrowheads. I was also surprised to find that you could walk to the top of the mound. The view is beautiful! Added bonuses are that it's FREE and very clean and the people are very nice. There is a small but cool gift shop as well. We were short on time so we only got to spend about an hour here, but I'm glad we went. I would plan for about 2 hours to really be able to read/see all the history and items.

We came to Moundsville specifically to see ....the Mound! Exceptional FREE visitors center with many artifacts from area inhabitants dating from a thousand years ago . Stone and bone tools and decorative items provide a glimpse into a native culture and way of live largely ignored by our educational system. Fascinating.

It was educational and admission is free. The staff was pleasant. Inside the museum the displays were neat to look at. The front desk attendant was friendly & knowledgeable about surrounding attractions. My family enjoyed the gift shop due to the nice collection of crystals. Honestly that would be the only reason we would return..gift shop.
