Great place to visit

This is a great place for the family to go and see a little bit of history. Plenty of room to have a nice picnic with the family.

Not many artifacts and only access to one of the large mounds at the moment due to some construction work going on. Friendly staff.

We visited during open hours but no one was at the site and the mounds were closed off. Inside the small museum was a video and some nice archive collections but it was too small to spend much time. The mounds were visible but not accessible for us.

The museum and signage about the mounds were very informative. There is also information about the relationship of these mounds and the people that built them to other mounds in the US. However, the mounds themselves were not much to see. The mounds are very close to the road, so you don't need to walk far.

Visited Winterville Mounds while in Greenville for the MS River Marathon. Interesting video at the visitors center telling the story of the mounds. Well worth the time.

Small but interesting museum filled with artifacts.It is situated on a very important native American mounds. It is a large park with plenty of room to roam and stretch your legs. Don't miss the red ear slider turtles in the creek who happily come toward the bridge when visitors offer them lettuce or other vegetables!

This leg of our road trip was taking us from Memphis to Vicksburg and to break the journey we planned to stop at the Winterville Mounds. We didn’t really know what to expect and this mound building was new to us. It's a smart looking museum, just on the main road, with plenty of parking. We were the only people... More

My husband is an archaeology buff and really enjoyed this mini museum. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is no admission charge, donations are accepted. Worth a stop.

I agree with a previous review that this is unexpectedly interesting. The video about the mound building is good and the wall around the property is a good way to stretch your legs as a break on the long drive from Clarksdale to Vicksburg. You will also learn a lot
