  • Lovely place. Beautiful museum. The walk is easy and pleasant. Well kept and the river close by. Nice for quiet meditation. Dogs are welcome on a leash. Quite a bit can be seen in an hour but plenty to keep one occupied for 2-3 easily. Would make a good picnic site with tables and benches scattered around.
  • Rangers are friendly and very informative. Great stop for a day visit. Books on Native American history are fairly accurate- this review is coming from a Ho-Chunk person, so I can only verify our history. Lots of kids seemed to be enjoying it, and I plan to bring mine when I have some.
  • The park ranger and a volunteer who was serving that day helped make the experience better than excellent!! They had a command of the culture and the people and were able to answer every question. The park is beautiful especially as you go back through the woods down to the river.
  • Amazing history! I wouldn't always buy what they "those" you happened here. There's no possible way humans could have built these mounds in the ancient days....
  • very nice park to let your kids run, the history here is amazing and has a little gift shop. my family learned a lot on this trip
