  • I loved this museum. First of all, it's completely free! I went with my kids ages 2, 4, and 6 and we all enjoyed it. The people at the information desk were SO nice and answered all of our questions. They have an entire boat next to the museum that you can explore. There are 4 levels and it was a lot of fun to see a piece of the Mississippi River history. There are activities in every level of the boat. The main deck is also air conditioned. The other exhibits were also fun. They had a fresh aquarium with catfish and bass. There were displays about the history and development of Vicksburg and the importance of water travel ways. Outside they had a water and sand table and a model of the Mississippi River for the kids to splash in. When we left they gave the kids water safety bags. I also left my phone there on accident and the folks there helped me relocate it.
  • The staff was friendly, the exhibits interesting, and I found the facilities clean and well-designed.
  • Very interesting, especially visiting the bowels of the Mississippi's engine room. Also, it's free!
  • This is a very small museum, but it is free! For its small size, it has quite a lot of interaction exhibits to help students and visitors learn about the history of the Mississippi River. I thought I was taught a lot back in elementary school about this river, but turns out there is a lot more I didn't know. The museum had multiple interesting facts to offer about the history of the river and the city of Vicksburg. It was a pleasant place to visit. The even have a decommissioned steam ship here which is enormous. The staff were all terribly kind and welcoming. If you have free time in Vicksburg, I recommend coming here to learn a few new things.
  • Museum was ok the river boat was cool.
