Allow time to walk up and down the scale Mississippi River. Unbelievable! I've always thought of the Mississippi being relatively straight, there are so many twists and turns, not only in the water, but the stories detailed on the placards too.

Enjoyed the Mississippi River display. Nice that this is free. Educational way to stretch legs outdoors. Skip the $4 monorail ride however. Only leaves every 15min and you can walk across the foot bridge for free in the same amount of time or less.

This was one of my favorite places in Memphis. The "map" of the Mississippi carved in stone with flowing water from Lake Itasca to the Gulf is amazing to follow. Lots of signage and information. Beautiful location on the river. Park ($5 on the weekend)...More

I only gave this an " average" recommendation because the weather dictates what your experience will be, concerts are great here. Not a bad place to visit to get some history on how it was formed and the Mississippi River. If your willing to brave...More

We'd planned to go to the Nat Civil Rights Museum, but they didn't open until 12. So we headed off to Mud Island Park in the morning. What a pleasant surprise. Kids were having fun getting wet in the model of the lower Mississippi River....More

I would assume that the actual park would be open...because it is outdoors. But I agree with Jenny W., I would call first. This was the first time I had been since I was little. So I am not familiar with their scheduling. Im... More
