The National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium is located in Dubuque, IA. Part aquarium, part museum, part science center, the River Museum inspires stewardship by creating educational experiences where history and rivers come alive!
Read a story about one of our animal ambassadors and get a chance to meet them up close! Choose from one of our reptile or amphibian ambassadors.
Learn more about one-room school houses and early education. Then we'll put the audience to the test by taking an 8th grade graduation exam from the 1850's. It may be harder than you think!
Discover ways the Mississippi River has influenced culture and commerce through the years. We will examine what careers and conservation on the river look like today.
Join one of our educators to learn some tips on how to draw animals. As part of this program, you will meet a couple live animal ambassadors.
Mussels, snakes and beavers; each species has a niche or role in the environment. Through the use of pelts and other hands-on items, participants will explore animals that call the Mississippi River home!
Become a herpetologist and explore the world of reptiles and amphibians! Learn about some of their amazing adaptations and the important roles they play in nature. A few live animals will stop by to help us learn!
