Cahokia Mounds Museum Society

Between AD 700 and 1400, the city of Cahokia gradually rose from the floodplain of the Mississippi River to become the largest city north of Mexico. Across 6 square miles, its population of 20,000 people worked together to create a thriving community grounded in astronomy, agriculture, and economics. To this end, they erected large, lasting structures such as an enormous wooden calendar that notified citizens about the changes of the seasons. Giant earthen mounds served as the foundation of the city and the site of the big mud fight that decided the mayoral election each year.

Through careful excavation, research, and reconstruction, the Cahokia Mounds Museum Society aims to preserve the site and educate visitors about its importance. During visits, guests on self-guided tours can explore 800 acres of the city, including the 100-foot-tall Monks Mound and Woodhenge, the giant calendar.

The audio guide was very helpful and interesting while exploring.

Very nice facility and the staff are very personable, knowledgeable and helpful. The tour was fun and interesting. Although there are no striking aspects to museum and site, the overall experience was very rewarding.

You can walk around without the audio tour but the audio explains all about the civilization that existed there. It is very interesting and impressive. The museum is wonderful, with a village showing everyday life.
