What a great museum! We took several hours to go through the museum and the river walk and were so impressed. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time for this attraction. It's definitely worth it. Great for kids, too!

We didn't see an advert for this, just a suggestion on trip advisor. We took the trolley car to the riverside and the monorail across to Mud Island. The last monorail off the island left at 5pm so we should have arrived earlier in order to spend more time in the river museum. There were very few visitors here.there is a lot of information about the river, riverboats, the people,civil war, music and more. A full size model of a riverboat was just one one the exhibits.
Outside there a scale model of the Mississippi River that stretches for 5 blocks that you can stroll alongside or paddle in.

There is a lot going on in this place and it's worth spending a bit of time looking at all the exhibits, statues and their inscriptions. A lot of history and explanations of how and why things were done in the past. very entertaining - not perhaps for younger children ..

This sounded very strange when the friend I was travelling with suggested we go, but it was absolutely fantastic. Took the monorail to the island and enjoyed wandering around this scale model, and dipping our feet in the pretend Mississippi at the end. Not many people were there (Memphis in general was actually quiet) and it was a lovely experience.
