While You’re Here

  • Access to the village site is only through the Interpretive Center. Our indoor exhibits will introduce you to the history of Angel Mounds and its Mississippian inhabitants before you exit to view the mounds themselves.

    • Photographs of the indoor exhibits are fine, but please, no flash photography. (It damages the exhibits!)
  • On the village site, you’ll be walking on real archaeological remains that are irreplaceable!
    • Please stay on the marked paths, and do not climb on the mounds. (Every footstep causes a tiny bit of damage, and we want to preserve the mounds 
    • Flash photography is fine outside.

  • The only way to see the mounds properly is to walk, and there are no benches past the end of our bridge. A path that passes all the major sights is longer than a mile, so be prepared for a bit of a hike!
