  • Could of been a nice trip if a few of the workers were not so rude to the children. A couple of the workers one lady who helped with corn husk dolls and the man who helped with arrowhead craft yelled ...  more »

  • The museum was very informative and the staff was friendly. The descriptions were very well done and I learned a lot. The mounds and grounds are very easy to see and are all within a short walk on the trails. Unfortunately, many of the museum descriptions and information pieces were very difficult to read. The lighting was not very good. I found myself trying to move to the side a lot to get out of my own shadow to read. I spoke with a staff member and she acknowledged the problem. She explained that they were given a grant for LED lighting but they kept overheating and shutting off. She said they were searching for funding to redo all of the lighting and possibly even the 17 year old displays entirely. She said the 11 state historic sites need about a million more per year to maintain what they have. So, buy a souvenir and help em out!
  • Nice walking trails the last time I been there tho it has been a few years. Alot to learn and explore as well. There's plenty to do that I do remember. Packing a lunch for a picnic is a good idea as well.
  • Again, went here as part of the awesome Museum Wander. Had not been out here in many years. The interpretive center was amazing. Did not go out to the mound sites because it was very hot that day. But there was enough to do and see inside to make it worth the visit. Again spent way to much in the gift shop. Will go back sooner than later. The Museum Wander has been great to reawaken an interest in local attractions.
  • More hype than what's there but history is pretty amazing,its more interesting reading about it then visiting it. But what a great area,so beautiful.
  • Awesome place to learn Native Culture and authentic home of local Native Americans! Great for the kids and adults!!
