They have limited hours, so make sure you check in advance. Information is located in several areas around the park. Park around the back, in front it's hard to get out in the traffic.

We arrived before they opened but could still walk around to see the small mound and school house. Nice historic area for Fort Walton. There is a small parking area on one side and a larger one on the other side.

this is a small museum which houses some very early artifacts from the mound which was dug in the 1960's. the amazing pottery designs done by the tribes was worth the price to me...so artistic. this is a perfect stop for a rainy day.

A small museum full of history of FWB. A $5 fee covers the museum and other buildings on the premises. Lots of artifacts from the Native Americans. It is worth the small fee to see everything offered.

The museum is small but interesting. Explains a lot of the history of FWB and Okaloosa Island. The park/mound next to it is nice but also small. It has changed over the years due to hurricanes. It is rumored there is some magic there. I...More

Pretty interesting history on the native Americans in Florida. Costs 5 bucks to go in. It is a part of the historic park and cultural center.

They have a museum that you can walk through for a small fee. It is a lot of Indian artifacts. The museum is nice, but the schoolhouse, post office and civil war buildings are fun to walk through. They show what these places looked like...More

Yes! I believe it's $5.80 for adults, kids are free I think. They have a website, if you search them on google it should pop up :)
