The Lower Mississippi River Museum offers a glimpse at what life is like along the river – examining both the risks and benefits of living so close to the water. The museum has an orientation theater, classroom space and an assortment of interactive and educational displays for all ages. Through both interactive and static displays, visitors can explore the River’s past, examine the science behind water movement, and even learn about the future plans for the Mississippi Valley. Tours on board the Motor Vessel Mississippi IV give visitors a feel for life on board the boat through interactive displays, a variety of historical items and a boat simulator in the pilothouse. Children can play on a scale model of the Mississippi River between Greenville and Natchez, which is behind the main exhibit hall along Levee Street. It holds about two inches of water to represent normal stages and about five inches to represent a flood.
