  • This is a free museum. You can climb to the top of the mound. Interesting to see the explanations about why the mounds were created.  more »
  • Plenty of history. This museum is free. It is right across the street from the penitentiary. Take the time to check it out. Walk the trail to the top and check out the view!  more »

  • I am giving this 5 stars because there is not a choice for higher number. The information and displayed are awesome and very breath taking. The fact that you can ascend the mound and see the city is amazing
  • It is astonishing that we have a witness to a very early civilization, since it was built between 250 - 150 BC! Well worth a visit. Unfortunately, went on July 4th, and the museum was closed
  • Admission is free and the museum gives a great history of the local indigenous people who built the mound. Great all day event, especially when paired with the West Virginia Penitentiary right across the street
  • This is an awesome conical mound. Nice museum, visitor center. Give yourself a couple hours to take it all in. And ofcourse there's the prison across the street
  • Interesting facts and information about the Indians. Just couldn't climb the mound, it's too steep for my bad hip
