Museum Visits

Take an entertaining and informative journey on the Mighty Mississippi at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium. Enjoy dynamic aquariums, historical exhibits and a stroll through the wetlands and boatyard. Each visit is a truly interactive experience where visitors can get "up close and personal" with native river animals and become barge pilots. Tour the William M. Black steamboat and watch as a boat is launched into the Mississippi River.
