this is a small museum which houses some very early artifacts from the mound which was dug in the 1960's. the amazing pottery designs done by the tribes was worth the price to me...so artistic. this is a perfect stop for a rainy day.

A small museum full of history of FWB. A $5 fee covers the museum and other buildings on the premises. Lots of artifacts from the Native Americans. It is worth the small fee to see everything offered.

Awesome collection of pre-historic pottery. The exhibits are great for old and young. I was with my 70+ yo parents and 10 yo son. Hands on activities for kids to try. Well worth the price of admission.
