The museum and site are a wonderful introduction to part of the history of this continent's forgotten and often ignored heritage. Very interesting and informative.

The audio tour was great! Very informative, not too long or strenuous; if you would prefer to drive to a couple of farther mounds you can, or you can take up to a ten-mile hike and several rounds of stairs to the top of Monk's mound. The museum was excellent as well. I particularly enjoyed the part about the research process which I haven't seen elsewhere. Will definitely go back again.

We really liked the Interpretive Center! The audio tour was helpful in understanding the history of mounds and stockades. I wish we knew that the audio tour is for Interpretive Center as well. We toured the center on our own and then when we went to pick up our iPods, we realized they had audio tour for the center as well. We went on two trails as well and saw lots of deer, monarch butterflies.

About 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 2200 acres of the city, including the 100-foot-tall Monks Mound and Woodhenge, the Sun calendar.
