Mississippi River Museum

Learn Fascinating Mississippi River Facts

Mississippi River Museum

The Mississippi River Museum is located at the Science Museum of Minnesota. Learn Mississippi River facts as you explore this beautiful facility.

The Mississippi River Visitor Center is part of the National Park Service's Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. Rather than establish stand-alone centers, the National Park Service partners with local agencies along a 72 mile stretch of the Mississippi River in Minnesota. This is the portion of the river that runs between Anoka and Hastings.

This is one of the primary interpretive centers for your Great River Road trip through Minnesota.

The visitor center at the Minnesota Science Museum is one of several Minnesota locations where you can learn about the natural and cultural history of the Mississippi River. Get updated news about Mississippi River related events at the Mississippi River Gallery.

The Mississippi River source, or headwaters of the Mississippi, in Minnesota is another place to learn about the mighty river. While there is not an official Mississippi River museum, there are many exhibits and displays in Itasca State Park where the river begins.

Fort Snelling State Park is located right in the heart of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The park sits right at the confluence of the Mississppi and Minnesota rivers. Take a hike on the easy Pike Island trail. Both rivers will be inview most of the time. If you want to be out on the river, canoes are available for rent. You can also hike or cross-country ski the trails at Fort Snelling in winter. 

A map of Mississippi River attractions will give you many more ideas about how to enjoy the history and recreational opportunities that the Mississippi River offers.

Mississippi River boat cruises are one of our favorite ways to enjoy the river. You will find dinner cruises and pleasure cruises that leave from St. Paul,Minneapolis and other locations.
