The history of the mound and the artifacts that were displayed were very interesting. Where comfortable shoes if you are going to walk to the top!

This place is someplace to learn a lot about native American heritage there are a lot of artifacts to view and it is just neat to know that they came from the hills of this valley

“The mound that put the mound in moundsville”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is required visiting if you don't accept current teachings on human antiquity,
they say it's just a burial mound but don't buy it. they dug out a stone with a language they could not identify. In the museum I learned the town was full of them til they dozed them all. Murica!

“Different”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

This is pretty cool yet creepy. I remember when I was little running to the top of the mound with my grandma lagging behind haha. It's a cool site to see if you're just passing through, and the little museum is pretty cool!
