Take an expert-led tour of the petroglyphs (rock carvings) that are thought to be some of the oldest in the Midwest.

You will get the rare chance to go beyond the ropes and view carvings under their most favorable viewing conditions: up close and in the morning sun.

Our 1000 Years Ago tour focuses on the indigenous agriculture that fueled a building boom and cultural explosion that led to the founding of the largest early city in the US. The tour will be accompanied by a discussion of one of the most dynamic periods of North America’s past.

Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than the event start time.

We also offer a Sunrise Tour focused on the site 10,000 years ago. Pick one or both to enjoy!
