Mud Island River Park/Mississippi River Museum

This small peninsula between the Mississippi River and Wolf River offers a lot to do on its 52 acres, including the Mississippi River Museum, River Park and Mud Island Amphitheater. Take a ride on the monorail and don't miss the River Walk, a five-block long, exact scale model of the Lower Mississippi River. Learn about history and geography as you walk along -- and even in -- the flowing water of the "river." It's one of the best and most unique ways to learn about the mighty Mississippi. Great for kids and adults of all ages, come and check us out May through October!
