The video does a good job of explaining a general overview of what you are about to see outside. The park rangers were friendly and ready to help or answer any questions. You can walk on some small trails near the mounds. This area isn't something young children would usually be interested (especially because they would not be allowed to climb on the mounds which I would assume would be enticing to them!) Very interesting for a history buff though!

I visited The Hopewell Cultural National Historical Park on the first day of Spring 3/20/2018. The weather did not get the memo it was Spring. In spite of the weather I walked the mound area and the nature trail. Although before venturing out I decided to chat with the Ranger inside the Visitor Center. She gave me a great overview of what this park was all about. I watched a 20 minute movie about the archaeology of the area, the artifacts that were discovered and life of the people who built these mounds. After walking the grounds I visited the museum located inside of the visitor center. Fascinating things were found! There was also a interactive computer which showed diagrams, pictures, maps and mini lectures on different aspects of the mounds and the people that inhabited this area. I really recommend checking out this state treasure. I learned so much.

JMJ Not what I thought it was about. The Mounds have a very special story and you need to go to the National Historical Park to get the whole story. Beautiful setting and be respectful of the mounds. Good for the whole family and free.

We have visited the mounds before but this was the first time for us to attend The Great Pumpkin walk. We stopped in during the afternoon to view the mounds and reread all the informative signs and to see the pumpkins lined up in the day light. We returned later after dark to follow the trail of lighted jack-o-lanterns. At the start of the trail we were given a lantern to carry to help us light the way. The Visitor Center was open after hours for this event. A good time all around. Thank you Park Service for putting on this event.
