This museum has some pretty interesting exhibits where you can learn about the river, the civil war, and the music of Memphis.

Not so much a 'kids' museum, but very cool items and lots for a vacationer to learn! Loved the Riverboat and Civil War Ironclad. Very friendly staff. Would absolutely go back again.

This was a very good part of the visit to mud island and the recreation of the Mississippi River along the riverwalk area was fantastic with kids wading through the water and lots of laughter.

Took my two boys over to the Mississippi River Museum at Mud Island. They really enjoyed the Monorail. We try to make every vacation an opportunity to educate our boys and the Mississippi River Museum at Mud Island perfect to do just that.

Great museum about the Mississippi river. Takes about 1 1/2 hours to see. Covers all aspects of the river and river travel. It's a great way to get out of the heat during the hot summer.

We wanted to take the pedway over to Mud Island. It was $10 more to visit the museum. We decided to add that and it was worthwhile.

Good history of the region, Mississippi river, origins of steamboats, Memphis floods, and attempts to make the experience "real."

Lots of history, with a great presentation that can be enjoyed at your own speed and viewed as a participant in many cases. Excellent!!
