The Mississippi River Museum

Hello Readers,

Dubuque, Iowa

While we lived in Iowa one of our favorite spots was The Mississippi River Museum. We got passes to the museum soon after I moved there. It was a great spot to go on a slow weekend or when there was a special event.

One of the features of the museum is the tour of the old dredging boat. It neat to see the inner workings of a dredging boat that offers a glimpse into the history of the Mississippi river. It is also a fun tour for kids because there are fake people manning different stations on the boat (they are not animated – not quite Disney status but still fun).

If you end up in Dubuque, Iowa and need a quick sight to see go check out the museum!
