Experience the Story of the Mississippi River

The National Great Rivers Museum – central location, and heart of Meeting of the Rivers Foundation. Open to the public since 2003, this 12,000-square-foot facility resides adjacent Melvin Price Locks and Dam. It is the direct result of a partnership between Meeting of the Rivers Foundation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Its purpose – to showcase the mighty Mississippi River and interpret its story. Through interactive exhibits, a theater, and daily public tours the facility introduces the public to the great rivers, their environments, the importance of their presence, and the interaction we have as humans with them.
