Mission Statement

The National Great Rivers Museum is dedicated to telling the story of the Mississippi River.

Known as the "Father of Waters", the Mississippi River drains 32 US States and 2 Canadian provinces. Near St. Louis, Missouri, the US Army Corps of Engineers Rivers Project manages 300 miles of the Mississippi from Cairo, IL to Saverton, MO and the lower 80 miles of the Illinois River covering nearly 100,000 acres of and and water. Come visit us and explore all that we have to offer.

Description

The National Great Rivers Museum is operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the Meeting of the Rivers Foundation. The Museum is open seven days a week from 9:00 to 5:00 offering tours of the adjacent Melvin Price Locks and Dam at 10:00, 1:00 and 3:00.

The Museum is an important link among the many things to do in the river confluence area. Located along the Meeting of the Rivers and Great River Road Scenic Byways, the confluence bike trail runs right by our door and connets us to the Illinois Lewis & Clark Historic Site to the South and the Alton Riverfront and Pere Marquette State Park to North.
