Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center

On the long list of Oklahoma’s historical gems, the Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center in Spiro has earned its place near the top. Once the seat of power during the Mississippian period (circa 800-1500 AD), the Spiro people ruled over a confederation of more than 60 North American tribes, influencing trade, religion and the political structure of the Southwest United States.

Now open to the public, visitors are invited to tour the remaining artifacts of this mound-building culture and enjoy a spectacular view into ancient life. Learn about the burial mounds located here and how the Spiro people filled them with artwork, artifacts and other clues that serve as keys to unlocking the mystery behind their ancient civilization. Stand among the serene native grasses and view the mounds created by the Spiro Indians before you step into the center to view objects excavated from the “King Tut of the Arkansas Valley.”
