The history of this site is fascinating and shines a light on some of North America's earliest-known civilizations. The tour is a bit less interesting, however -- our tour guide was VERY talkative -- I think he may have been waiting for anyone to show up and put all of his enthusiasm into our group. Very nice guy, but I tuned out many times during our visit. The small museum has nominal interest, but will deepen your understanding of the site. Finally, you'll tour the grounds with a chance to view the remaining archeological mounds, some of which you definitely could not recognize without prior explanation. A modestly interesting site that will thrill only hard-core history buffs, but if you're in Marksville and have an hour to kill and don't care about the casino, give it a whirl.
