I love history, museum was educational, the mounds were fascinating. Just imaging life at that time, visioning the people living life around the mounds. Awesome. Gift shop was great too!

Unfortunately, the mounds were flooded when we were there, but the museum was very well done and interesting. When you go, please donate. They are in need of renovations.

Beautiful interpretive site, lots of artifacts and there paths to walk the grounds are beautiful maintained. There's a party to the top of the biggest mound that's an easy climb not to be missed
