Moundville was once the site of a powerful prehistoric community that, at its peak, was America's largest city north of Mexico. Here, 800 years ago, Native Americans constructed 28 massive flat-topped earthen pyramids. The park's museum displays many of the beautiful treasures that have been unearthed at the site.
Following a $5 million renovation and expansion, the park's museum features a stunning exhibition, "Lost Realm of the Black Warrior" which includes recreated scenes, special effects, and one of the finest collections of prehistoric Native American art on display in the U.S.
