Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, administered by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, is just eight miles from St. Louis, in Collinsville, Illinois, off Interstates 55/70 (Exit 6) and Interstate 255 (Exit 24) on Collinsville Road.

The site’s interpretive center exhibits and gallery remain closed for most of 2024 for major mechanical renovations. However, the grounds are open daily from dawn until dusk. A water fountain and portable restrooms are located in the Monks Mound parking lot, and dogs must always remain on leash.

To schedule a guided tour, call 618-346-5160. There is no admission fee for the site, but there is a suggested donation of $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, $2 for students, and $15 for families. For more information, call 618-346-5160 or visit
