    Great experience for a family on a budget! We enjoyed touring the riverboat! The museum itself had great exhibits about the Mighty Mississippi River!  more »

    Staff was great and let us in at 3:45 even though they close at 4. The guy at the front desk told us to take our time and make sure we see everything. The exhibits were great and everything was well organized and functional.

    Not a very large museum, but packed with interesting facts about the Mississippi river. The 7 minute movie at the start is great, and the self- guided tour of the boat is cool. Kids are going to love the boat, but be careful. The stairs are typical for a boat, steep and narrow. And all of this is Free!

    Great place to bring family to learn about the mighty Mississippi and the Army Corps of Engineers who care for it. And it's all free

    Donations requested, but no tickets required. Interesting info and exhibits. Not a ton to see - a couple hours to look around most of it.

    Not many shops, most are closed. No many activities. Good place for branded garments
