This museum tells the story of the Natchez Indians with artifacts and pictures/posters. The bookstore has much printed information. The friendly staff is helpful and provides a map to walk the trail outside the museum.

The museum although small was very interesting. There grounds lush and green took about 45 - 60 minutes to cover very close a main street. Very historical, lovely, well maintained grounds. A do not miss if you have children.

The mounds themselves are mildly interesting, but the museum gives a very nice overview of the cultures of the Natchez Indians, including a nice video.
