We really enjoyed this park/museum. The reason for the 4 rating was that the monorail was down and we had to walk across to Mud Island. Enjoyed the history about the Mississippi. Walking the scaled Mississippi River was very enjoyable. Lots of walking but plenty...More

This is also a Memphis must see! I like to take my time visiting places and the River Park is the attraction for that. It is children friendly and don't hesitate to take your shoes off!!

We liked the walk and the view. There were places to sit if one needed to rest. Cold drinks were available.

We had already walked a lot the morning we visited so we sprung for the $4 each/roundtrip fee for the monorail. Our 7 year old loved following the river and it occurred to us near the end that we should have brought a small boat...More

We are traveling to Memphis in March and noticed the Mississippi River Museum and visitor center is closed until April. Is the entire park and monorail closed until April as well or would we still be able to go to the park in the off-season?
