Part museum, part aquarium, part science center, where history and rivers come alive! Located in the Port of Dubuque along the Mississippi River, the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium offers a 14-acre campus, providing a unique experience with hands-on exhibits, daily history and creature chats, rich river history, special events, and more. Catch a thrilling film in the 4D theater, touch a stingray or a sea urchin, and explore a national landmark, the William M. Black, as you learn about life on the river! Since opening in 2003, nearly 4 million guests from all 50 states and 70 countries have visited the River Museum, and its outreach programming has reached 20,000 people annually. The River Museum is an accredited Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) facility, an American Alliance of Museums (AAM) accredited museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate, and a member of the Museums for All program. Among the leading interpretative centers and an active participant in local, regional, and national conservation programs, the River Museum strives to inspire stewardship through educational experiences.
