Mississippi River Museum & Riverwalk in Memphis, TN

125 N Front St Memphis, TN 38103
At the Mississippi River Museum & Riverwalk, you can take a trip down the mighty Mississippi River through stories, artifacts, and activities featured at Mud Island Park near Downtown Memphis.

The museum is divided into several areas and offers something for everyone. Various sections of the museum include Exploration & Settlement, which focuses on the lives of the first settlers along the Mighty River; Riverfolk / Theater of Disasters, which honors those whose livelihoods depended on the river, the events when everything didn't go as planned, and more.

Memphis is truly the Home of the Blues, so you'll also see exhibits focused on the music of the Mississippi River in the Music Room. Plenty of history, entertainment, and education is packed within the wall of the Mississippi River Museum, and you'll want to be sure to check out the scale model of the riverwalk at Mud Island.


Reviews
Go with your Teva_s or barefoot so you can wade through real waters in the scale model of the Mississippi River, following its entire length. This was SO much fun! I was in Memphis on a layover and played and wandered this exhibit for hours, totally charmed. Historical markers and stories added to the experience, and I felt like I had really seen (and walked) one of the greatest rivers in the country. Take some drinking water with you - the day I was there it was warm and humid - and it is worth being comfortable while you are wandering the Big Ol' River.
