FLORENCE – The Florence Indian Mound Museum through its partnership with the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area is hosting a series of children’s activities. These will help students investigate the early culture of the Shoals through interactive learning.

These programs will cover a wide range of topics and they are suitable for an elementary level age group. The programs will focus on Native American history, culture, and will have a creative component which will engage students in hands-on learning. All events are free.

The Astronomy program will take place Saturday, April 27 at 10am. This learning exercise will focus on the southeastern night sky and how the first Alabamians used the sun, moon, and stars to orient themselves. Students will produce constellation charts that they can bring home with them.

This program is sponsored by the City of Florence Department of Arts and Museums and the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area. The Florence Indian Mound Museum is located at 1028 S. Court Street in Florence.
