Florence Indian Mound and Museum is home to 43 feet high earthen mound that dates back to 500 BCE. Built cleverly around the mound, this museum has an extensive collection of ancient pottery, tools, and jewelry. It is designed in such a way that its cave-like structure adds mystery to the pre-historic exhibits. Originally established in 1968, the museum has expanded and changed places with time. Today, it has become one of the popular tourist attractions in Florence.
Indian Mound & Museum Reviews & Ratings
This mound is kind of hidden in an industrial complex so it can be a little bit of a maze as you navigate around trying to find it. But it is really really cool. It basically looks like a medium sized hill to the uneducated eye. But there is so much more. Too bad the museum was closed when I drove by this place. Either way it was still very fun to look at.
One of the most interesting things to visit in Florence is the Florence Indian Mound museum. Not only is the mound itself incredible, but the museum is top notch. The museum is host to many events, many of which are geared towards educating children. The owners are super awesome and make sure to treat you like family when you visit. When in florence this is a must visit, and you will walk away well educated, and with a smile on your face. Do yourself a favor. VISIT!!! You will not regret it.
Very nicely set up and so much history and information. The kids enjoyed it and I would like to go back to see more detail. We're local but will definitely be going back again soon!
Small museum but very informative. The attendant will give you some additional information about the mound as well as showing some old photos. There are some steep steps going up to the top of the mound.
The Florence Indian Mound is such an amazing part of history. The museum is beautifully designed and provides excellent education. Definitely a must see in Florence, Alabama.
