My wife and I toured Angel Mounds on a wet and warm day. The museum was full of dioramas but had no film clip or slide show. We were the only people there until a troop of children with chaperones arrived. They had a small exhibit we enjoyed by artists who had recovered from mental illness. Then we went outdoors.... More

Inside is a very nice museum and the preteens and teenager enjoyed more than I thought they would. They especially enjoyed the gift shop with lots of interesting... More

Our Mazda's nav took us to the Pollack Ave address, but brought us in such a way that we didn't notice the site building sitting back several hundred feet from the road. We figured out our mistake and arrived soon enough. Your results may vary! IMHO the historic site is... More

We enjoyed our visit to Angel Mounds. We have visited Serpent Mound in Ohio and Cahokia Mounds in IL. The exhibit s at Angel Mounds were of very good quality. The area was well maintained and we'll marked. It was a cold day, but we enjoyed the mounds themselves. It was an enjoyable and educational experience.

This is such a fantastic way to really see Native American culture and understand how they lived in this area. The museum is a bit old now, but it still is very interesting and has lots of fun and intriguing information about all aspects of Native American life. The outdoor area is absolutely beautiful in the spring time, and has... More
