If you are interested in archeology and The Mississippian culture this is a don’t miss. Lovely museum and short film. The large carved stone male and female effigies still have original paint and are fascinating. The 63 foot tall mound is worth climbing and the...More

Really enjoyed our visit to the mounds. The museum has some impressive artifacts. Once you see the tools in the museum that the Indians used to make these mounds, it makes it that much more impressive that they were able to pull it off. Definitely...More

The mounds are fascinating, and the museum is small but excellent. The grounds are beautiful, and it is great just to stroll by the river ( and see the fish traps). Great place for children to explore, play, and imagine. Plus plenty of free parking.

Etowah Mounds is the most intact Mississippian Culture site in the Southeast. Artifacts in the museum show how natives of this political and religious center decorated themselves with shell beads, paint, complicated hairdos, feathers and copper ear ornaments. Hand-carved stone effigies weighing 125 pounds still...More

The Etowah Indian Mounds and Museum are a great activity if you want to get out for a little bit and stretch your legs. There is not a huge amount to do other than exploring the mounds and visiting the small museum. Doesn't take a...More

This is a nice and quick (about 1 hour) trip up I-75 from downtown Atlanta and near Cartersville. Yes, it's a field nestled beside a river. Yes, it has three Indian mounds. Yes, I got the sense of the village and the lives that surrounded...More

Great field trip. Students enjoyed an outdoor demonstration of tools and weapons used by first prehistoric people in Georgia. They walked to the top of the mounds on a guided tour. Students also browsed a museum and watched a video.

At first sight, you think there's not much to see, but visit their museum first and learn about the Indians who once lived there. You will then see things differently and understand the mounds. If you chose to climb, it's an easy one, or you...More
