Moundville Archaeological Park
Mo to Su from 08:00 AM to 08:00 PMThe Moundville Archaeological Park, located on Highway 69 about 14 miles south of Tuscaloosa, is one of the most significant prehistoric sites in the United States and one of the most popular destinations in Alabama. The park consists of 26 earthen mounds, the Jones Archaeological Museum and a campground. It is believed that between 800 CE and 1400 CE, Moundville was home to as many as 5,000 indigenous people, making it perhaps the largest city in North America. The collections housed at the museum are among the most important of their kind in the country. Native Americans and children under five years are admitted free. Guided tours are available.
