The visitor center contains a wealth of artifacts, dioramas, and information as well as a movie. Spend time here to absorb the significance of the ancient mounds. The amount of information can be overwhelming, but it is necessary to put the significance of the site in context. This is history you will not learn in public school, and there are... More

What a jewel and fee free as well. A must see stop. Museum has amazing collections. Celebrate 100 years of the National Park Service protecting and preserving archaeological resources and the stories that belong to all of us.

Has a nice little museum to walk thru and then you go outside and walk around to see the mounds. Nice grounds. It was a very hot day when we were there so probably a good idea to keep some water with you. Entry is free. Well worth a stop.

Lots of walking, if you have bad knees don't do any trails, but can drive nr the Indian mounds and at the top great viewing, picnic grounds, a free adventure for kids and adults alike. We really enjoyed ourselves.

I enjoyed my opportunity to explore the mounds and plan to go back when the weather is cooler. It is worth the trip just to go into the mounds.
