You don’t always get a chance to walk the Mississippi River from its confluence with the Ohio River to the Gulf Of Mexico in one day, but the River Walk at Mud Island is the way to do it---on a smaller scale, of course. The river in miniature covers the distance from Cairo, Illinois, to New Orleans in five blocks.... More

Well, I'm going to qualify my review by saying that with the exception of one place to get "bar food" and one gift shop, all of the other places on the island were closed for the season. The temperature was in the mid-70's. They might want to re-think that policy; people were bored after a few minutes. You should call... More

The park is a wonderful concept and explains so much about the Mississippi River and the towns along the way. If you are travelling down/up the Mississippi the park gives you a great introduction. But the representation of the river is looking a little tired and needs some maintenance. The museum within the building is excellent, especially the representation of... More

We visited Mud Island River Park and the Mississippi River Museum in the middle of a weeklong road trip from New Orleans thru northern Louisiana and western Mississippi and ending up in Memphis. Having spent three days driving the delta and making roadside stops when something looked interesting, the museum was a great way to put all that we saw... More

We went to Mud Island to see the scale model of the lower Mississippi delta. And we were fascinated by it. While I think I would have benefitted from an intro from a tour guide, we were able to figure it out and learned quite a bit. Very good spot for those interested in the region or who just like...

We enjoyed the ride over on the suspended monorail to see the river and the mighty Mississippi scaled down attraction. A little bit of peace from the hustle and bustle.

We took the monorail over to Mudd Island. It was a cold misty day but we enjoyed walking around the island. They have done a very nice job of mapping out the Mississippi River. You can walk along the river from beginning to end. There are also nice views of the real Mississippi. A nice way to spend an hour... More

Parking fee, arrived 1 hr before closing yet guard indicated they closed early that day. Nice to take a few pics. Would have been nice to take the gondola ride to get a better view of the Mississippi River.
