Summer Solstice Walks
Sure, you’ve probably heard of the Spiro Mounds – but did you know they also have ties to the cosmos?! This is a fun family event featuring expertly guided tours through the Archaeological Center, then tag along for the two-hour full walk or the easy one-mile walk. You’ll see the unique ancient Native American mound site and learn how and why some of these mounds actually line-up to the sunsets during the Earth’s solstices and equinoxes. Afterward, take a walk through the incredible museum to check out the lifelike displays and dioramas. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop!
