“Unique experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

Took the family on a few different occasions to the River Walk and enjoyed it every time. We follow the Mississippi all of the way to the end and the kids enjoyed playing in the water. It is a quiet and pleasant place to enjoy a bit of history. I recommend going through the museum inside as well, but if you just want to enjoy the great outdoors and a pretty view of the water, then just do the outdoor walk.

“Great walk along thr Mississippi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

We had a great walk after lunch along the Mississippi. There were lots of historical plaques along the walk. The only problem was the weather that day.

“Beautiful and educational....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

The whole Mud Island Experience on the banks of the Mississippi was very interesting, if a little dry, in some places (No pun intended) I'm not sure kids would appreciate it as much as adults, especially anyone who wants to be steeped in the histoyr, biology and culture of the Delta....A very peaceful place to sit and watch the mighty river and the water traffic on a fall afternoon....

“Great place to pass some time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

Excellent place to watch traffic on the river and see the moored stern-wheelers on the Tennessee shore. Really interesting scale model of the entire Mississippi, and a couple of good souvenir shops. Cafeteria was a bit pricey, though.
