Museum provides visitors with a glimpse at life along the river—examining both the risks and benefits of living so close to the water. Inside the building, the museum features an orientation theater, classroom space and an assortment of interactive and educational displays for all ages. The museum offers tours aboard the Motor Vessel Mississippi IV. This tugboat was in use from the 1960s until 1993 when it was finally retired. Visitors will better understand life aboard the vessel through interactive displays, a variety of historical items and a boat simulator in the pillot house. Free admission.
