  • If it was open this would be a great place things are growing where they shouldn't be looks abandoned
  • Mud Island had just closed for the season the day before so nothing was open. We were still able to look at the Mississippi River Walk. It was amazing but a bit boring after awhile. Enjoyable walk though.
  • Amazing place to go with your family. It contains a huge model of the Mississippi River. It also has a theater about the history. Definitely a great place for fun and history.
  • Mud Island ended up being a day trip for us on the way to Nashville. While the tram was not open that day we REALLY enjoyed the walk across the bridge and then following the Mississippi River all the way to the Gulf of Mexico on the island. It gave our kiddos insight into how large the river is, towns along its path and the topography of the river. This was a great blend of learning and fun that our family loved.
  • When we planned to go here I wasn't sure how much time or how it was going to be. As a family we where pleasantly surprised. The replica of of the Mississippi River was cool the kids where able to take off shoses and walk through it. It was 95 that day so we didn't walk it all but was pretty fun
