I had wanted to visit Mud Island a few years ago, but it is closed on Monday. So on this visit to Memphis, I made sure that we would not be there on a Monday. Go for the history of this great river which is featured in the museum. You'll see models of rafts, keel boats, riverboats and gunboats. You'll learn about floods on the river and efforts to control them. You'll learn about the people who live by the river. There is also an area featuring the history of music in Memphis. Outside you'll see a model of the Mississippi as it twists and turns on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. Some people may walk in the water as it flows in this model. My only complaint is that the selection in the gift shop was a bit skimpy. I think more books could have been featured with the history of the river.
