My family and I love taking our kids to Indian Mound. It's a pretty small place and doesn't take too long to walk around. We're local to Indian Mound, so we're not driving that far - if you're not local, definitely plan a trip during a time that they're having an event. During their annual celebration, you can see the dancers in full Indian dress, experience the authentic music, learn about their culture, make crafts, buy handmade items, etc.

They also have nights where you can come look at the night sky during things like a lunar eclipse. Usually they have a telescope to view, but you can also bring your own. They offer firelight tours at night (check their schedule to see when they're offered), Archaeology days, etc.

If you're in the Montgomery County area, it's worth stopping in! :)
