Mud Island River Park

Mud Island River Park

Take the monorail from the eastern bank of the Mississippi to this river island where the view of the Memphis skyline is only one of the many attractions. A to-scale replica of the Mississippi River from Cairo, IL to New Orleans, LA charts the river's course and provides important information about the ecological, geographic and historical aspects of the largest river in North America. The Mississippi River Museum located in the park covers the cultural history of the Lower Mississippi River Valley, including exploration, early settlements and river engineering. Mud Island is also the permanent home of the famous Memphis Belle warplane, the first to return home from WWII battle with no casualties.

Experience the River on the River! Rent a bike, canoe, kayak or pedal boat. Camp along the river. Walk down the Riverwalk. Enjoy the exhibits in the Museum. Or simply enjoy the picnic area.
