    Enjoyed the Mississippi River display. Nice that this is free. Educational way to stretch legs outdoors. Skip the $4 monorail ride however. Only leaves every 15min and you can walk across the foot bri...  more »

    This was one of my favorite places in Memphis. The "map" of the Mississippi carved in stone with flowing water from Lake Itasca to the Gulf is amazing to follow. Lots of signage and information. Beaut...  more »

    This has been my favorite place to bring visitors for over 10 years ... until a recent visit in May 2017. What was once among the best, most unique and fun places to see in Memphis, is now a run-down, dirty disappointment. General lackadaisical, unmotivated, unprofessional attitude among many employees has resulted in trash, filth, broken lamps, filthy paddleboats ... a stinking mess in desperate need of a good manager and some TLC. Monorail barely functional and seemingly random schedule. Food selection at both cafes was either hotdogs (not bad) or the world's worst pizza ... all at ridiculous prices. I very rarely write a bad review and my attitude of deep disappointment is simply because this was, could and SHOULD be a Memphis gem ... not the pitiful mess it has become. :'-(

    Great value. Outdoor river was perfect. My 5 year old son loved it! Museum was nice too.

    Kids had fun in the water but parts of the water were absolutely disgusting... this place could use a major overhaul on the riverwalk and pool areas.
