The basket weaving demo was great. The ladies in the museum are so helpful and informative. A little pricey on the baskets to sell, but they are handmade.

The friendly man behind the counter was more than willing to tell us all about the history of the Natchez. The visitors center was well documented and gave us a fine look info the rich culture of these people.

Informative displays and artifacts in the museum. This was a last minute stop on the way home. Quick walk to see the mounds. I'd like to spend more time here. Cute buffalo teeth necklaces for the grandchildren.

There is a museum with a quick film on this site, as well as three well-documented mounds; all presented in a beautiful park setting. Plan on spending about an hour to view the exhibit in the museum and take a walk around the park.

In this museum you can learn a bit about the history and culture of the Natches Indian tribe, and their interaction with French settlers. The museum is small, but interesting, with very friendly staff. Outside you can walk around the three mounds, and read about...More

Yes, we were told it was ok to walk dogs on leash. We walked our schnauzers around the grounds, though they are not allowed in the museum.
