Begin at the Visitor Center
Access to the Monument's natural and cultural features begins at the visitor center. Stop at the front desk and pick up a brochure containing more information and a map of the hiking trails. A 15-minute film interpreting the story of American Indian moundbuilding cultures is featured in the center's auditorium. Explore temporary exhibits and a formal museum exhibit displaying ancient Indian artifacts.
