a scale model of the Mississippi River that is about half a mile long, gives a true appreciation of just how massive this river is. Also contains a really good museum of Memphis River History and musical influences Well worth the trip, and also the monorail over and back is a cool experience

Nice break from the city. Gives you an idea of how large the river is. It appears that it would be a nice small concert venue.

We had heard this was a dog friendly area. Went to the ticket window and was told dogs are not allowed. A dog isn't allowed at an outrside path area? Come on Memphis, get with it. Many people travel with their pets!

We had a bit of trouble finding it with google maps but once we did we enjoyed our visit. The museum is well done and the outdoor area was fun for the kids to wade in.

Loved the museum. Lots of exhibits. The replica of the Mississippi river is very well done. I learned a lot about the history of the river.

We took the kids there last summer and it was wonderful. We stayed until the sunset it was so beautiful on the water. There was a lot of people there which made it well worth it. I think it was prom season because we saw a lot of kids taking pics in pretty dresses and tux

Walked to. A restaurant in the area one evening. Nice walk. Not the easiest to get to if not in a car though but once you're there it's lovely.

location is beautiful overlooking the Mississippi, but the venue is old and dated and desperately in need of a refresh. the riverwalk was interesting, but the information displays were sad illustrations of what's lacking in the great city of Memphis, Tn. the information contained misspellings, poor grammar and duplicated information, my friend who is from the area was embarrassed by...

I just read a new review entitled ''Even The Bridge Was Closed'' that stated it was sent two days ago and I was confused. We stayed for days ago and everything in Memphis was open. I am not certain where This gentleman was, but, it would not have seemed to be the Memphis we were in. This is a wonderful... More

The made to scale river path and museum are fantastic! What a great exhibit even all these years later! Some of the most amazing facts I've ever learned in my life. Monorail ride gives great views!
