About Angle Mounds State Historic Site:

Angel Mounds is located in Southwestern Indiana and was the home to many Native Americans. Today, Angel Mounds State Historic Site is nationally recognized as one of the best preserved prehistoric Native American sites in the United States. From 1100 to 1450 A. D., a town on this site was home to people of the Middle Mississippian culture, who engaged in hunting and farming on the rich bottom lands of the Ohio River. Several thousand people lived in this town protected by a stockade made of wattle and daub. Because Angel Mounds was a chiefdom (the home of the chief) it was the regional center of a large community that grew outward from it for many miles.

Angel Mounds State Historic Site is part of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Indiana State Museums and Historic Sites. It is one of 16 state museums and historic sites in Indiana.

Angel Mounds State Historic Site is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9a.m. until 5p.m. and from 1p.m. until 5p.m. on Sunday. We are closed Mondays. Admission includes access to the museum as well as over 100 acres of the historical site, and also any special events or exhibits that are on display or available at the time of your visit. Admission is $4.00 for adults, $2.00 for children (12 and under), and $3.50 for seniors (55 and up).
