Thousands upon thousands of historical objects make this museum visit authentic inside and out. Blow the ship’s original steam whistle (weather permitting). Peek into a cabin, check out the cargo and vintage cars, check out the mechanics of a working sternwheeler… Discover something new and exciting with each visit.
