Cool Adena mound with a great museum. Well worth a visit if you're anywhere near the area or just passing through.

I am giving this 5 stars because there is not a choice for higher number. The information and displayed are awesome and very breath taking. The fact that you can ascend the mound and see the city is amazing

It is astonishing that we have a witness to a very early civilization, since it was built between 250 - 150 BC! Well worth a visit. Unfortunately, went on July 4th, and the museum was closed

Admission is free and the museum gives a great history of the local indigenous people who built the mound. Great all day event, especially when paired with the West Virginia Penitentiary right across the street

As a history buff I loved this museum and burial site.
