The Lower Mississippi River Museum, LMRM was created to provide an understanding of the risks and benefits for life surrounding the Mississippi River. The LMRM showcases the Federal Government's role in the Mississippi River's past as well as the collaborative efforts from all stakeholders in maintaining a healthy river system.
The images and stories center on the Vicksburg, Mississippi vicinity, the bluff city in the center of the Lower Mississippi River Valley. The LMRM provides a unique and interactive way to learn about the history, people and events that have been a part of the Mighty Mississippi, by showcasing how different communities, farming families and the US Army Corps of Engineers have all utilized and still to this day utilize the Mighty Mississippi River!
