If you are visiting make sure you take the time to walk down to Front Street and take the walkway or even the travel vehicle. It is an area full of history. Facilities are the cleanest I have experienced. And the staff working there aare so friendly and helpful,

We were there on a chilly day in early May. A couple groups of school children still managed to enjoy wading in the model of "Old Man River." We walked the whole length of it, back and forth, which is a tad over a mile long. We were disappointed, though, that the snack bar was closed, because we had missed lunch.

The museum on Mud Island is definitely worth the visit. You can climb aboard a full-sized stern-wheeler model, visit a Civil War ironclad, see how Memphis and the River played a part in the origins of different types of music, and more.

Grandchildren loved the Memphis Bell & "jumping" the Mississippi River. Great to read Mark Twain after you go. They see the river still being used today as a highway to the American heartland. They loved the sky bridge.

This was a fun little stop on a hot afternoon. I would definitely recommend taking swim shoes for little ones because the "river" is pretty rough for your feet but we were able to still play without them. The monorail ride was short but fun for a 3 1/2 yr old. The museum is really awesome for history buffs. For people like me who are not that into history, I was still enjoying myself and really thought the music portion of the museum was cool. We did the entire thing in about 2 hours although we could have stayed in the museum longer. I would say this is a cool inexpensive stop and a different experience for sure.

The museum itself is interesting but the absolutely best part is the scale replica of the Mississippi River from the northern borders of the US all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. We walked the whole thing and were very intrigued. It's a waterpark and outdoor attraction all rolled into one.
