I did not expect this Museum to be as interesting as it was. All of the exhibits are interesting and educational. Be sure to take a free tour of the nearby Melvin Price Lock and Dam.

Very educational and entertaining experience. Some hands-on displays and a great gift shop that has a lot for kids as well as a good selection of books on the area. The walk along the dam itself has to be done with a guide. We missed that because of other time-sensitive obligations, but would recommend it based on comments of others who have done it.

The museum is very informative and interesting. There is a lot of facts about the river that I had no idea about. Definitely a great stop to take the family.
