National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium

ADD TO MY TRIP

Good museum for kids and adults who want a fun education on the Mississippi River. Our family especially liked this one exhibit where you virtually fly as a bird from the top of the river (N. Minnesota) all the way down toward the Louisiana delta. There’s a “touch tank” where kids (and adults) can touch freshwater mussels, snails, and crawfish if so desired. The kids in our family were entertained (they didn’t wander off aimlessly like they usually do) so overall it was a successful visit.
