We took our grandson, who just turned 3, to Dickson Mounds Museum on Sept. 9, 2013. The museum was clean and neat and the exhibits were very educational. The first floor happened to have a Lincoln exhibit at the time which was very interesting too. I believe those exhibits change periodically, which is nice because there is something different to learn about. We watched an interesting video in a theatre on the 3rd floor which even kept our grandson sitting still. He also loved the beautiful butterfly on the wall of the 3rd floor. On the 2nd floor as he was looking at an exhibit he said to his Papa..."can you say hieroglyphics?" so as we were thinking he was just walking through all the exhibits, he was actually really looking at them! No matter what age you are, you will enjoy this museum. You can choose to take the stairs or use the elevator. Very enjoyable time for our family! The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the gift shop is not open on weekdays, only on weekends, so we were disappointed. Overall great experience.
