Visitors to Dickson Mounds Museum's more than 15,000 square feet of exhibits discover many different ways of interpreting the past, including innovative displays of artifacts, arts, and archaeology; exciting hands-on activities; and multi-media presentations.
Reflections on Three Worlds reveals the world of Mississippian people whose 800-year-old sites surround the museum today. The exhibits depict the complex life and culture of these people, trace in detail the evidence of archaeology, and lead to a spectacular multimedia event that takes one through a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, symbols, music and voices of the three worlds of Mississippian belief.
Other exhibits at Dickson Mounds include an interactive Discovery Center; a Special Exhibits Gallery; the Eveland Village Site, where the remains of three early Mississippian buildings are preserved for viewing on the museum grounds; and an exhibit that tells the story of the museum itself, History.
Those wishing to schedule a tour or program at the museum will find details at Group Programs.
Dickson Mounds also offers the traveling exhibit The North American Bald Eagle.
