The site may have been the primary ceremonial center for other small Mississippian sites in the area around AD 1100. The rest of the museum grounds are open to the public during daylight hours.

The exhibits depict the complex life, society, and culture of these people, trace in detail the evidence of archaeology, and lead to a spectacular multimedia event that takes one through a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, symbols, music and voices of the three worlds of Mississippian belief.
