Moundville Archaeological Park

634 Mound Park

The Moundville Archaeological Park aims to preserve the history of local Native American cultures through a walking trail, museum and living history village. The site is located along the southern bank of the Black Warrior River in the town of Moundville, the location of the largest city in ancient North America. The park's Indian Village has a number of homes depicting various daily activities of the society while the museum holds a number of artifacts drawn from the site itself.

Visited the park today. The museum is very small but kind of interesting. The walking trail is not kept up very well. The wooden platforms are broken. Instead of fixing them, there is just wood piled in the middle of the adjacent gravel walking trail. All in all it's not really worth the drive or money spent to get in.

Such an interesting place to visit. We stopped over on our road trip. Campground was empty except for us. We extended another night just so we could learn about the mounds. This led to us start looking for more of these mounds. This is our past, our history.

Mediocre at best. If you've never been here, come see it! It's a very interesting place to visit once in a while. And the prices went up, I think. Museum is interesting, but is in need of attention and some updating.

As an archaeology student, this was a must see when doing fieldwork in the area. These mounds are very impressive though the video in the welcome center was a little cringy. Not a bad price to get in ($8 for students). Wish we could’ve gone on more mounds but it’s understandable. The park was really kept up nicely and all facilities were very clean - even the Indian Village model was fairly clear of cobwebs. I wonder how this upkeep (i.e. mowing the lawn) affects long-term erosion. The museum was very nice and I loved seeing the artifacts up close. The hologram medicine man was under maintenance when I went, but it would’ve been cool to see since I’ve heard about it before.

This is such a cool place! Such rich and interesting history. There is a really cool boardwalk and geocahces. The museum may be a little cultural inaccurate but still very interesting. We were the only people there the day we went.
