The Mississippi River! Don't miss the beautiful views overlooking the Mississippi. A wall of windows provides panoramic display. A telescope is also provided for a closer look at the river and the life around it.
River Pilot Simulator: Test your skills at the challenging task of maneuvering barges down the Mississippi River. Once you try your hand you'll find the bigger they are, the slower they turn.
Sewer Pipe: Walk through a city sewer pipe and discover where our drinking water comes from and where it ends up. Also be sure to check out the strange collection of items that get flushed down the drain.
The Charles E.: Tour an authentic Mississippi River towboat, the Charles E. Go into the pilothouse to see what the interior looks like, and get a better view of the Mississippi River valley.
