Date/Time

June 21, 2019 to June 21, 2019
11:00 AM until 09:00 PM

Description

Features guided tours to learn about the unique prehistoric Native American mound site, the types of mounds, why they were created and why some of the mounds are lined up for the sunsets of the Solstices and Equinoxes. There will be three walks led by archaeologist Dennis Peterson starting at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 7 p.m. For those wishing to see the sunset, the 7 p.m. walk will end just about sunset, which is when the alignment will take place.

In addition to the regular admission fees, there is a small fee for this series of tours: $5 per adult and $3 per child. No reservations are required. Museum admission is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors and $1 for children.

The tours will begin at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 7 p.m.
