Mighty Mississippi puts the grandeur of North America’s greatest river in context with the cultures that have grown and thrived around it, from the largest and most influential American Indian centers of the Mississippian cultural period; to the vast European and Indian fur trade networks that forever changed the continent; to the revolutionary steamboats, factories, and immigration of the Industrial Age. Discover the regional heritage of the Middle Mississippi watershed as revealed through a diverse range of stories and artifacts that stem from the Mother of Rivers and its tributaries. Through this mix of historic objects, images, and media, Mighty Mississippi also sheds light on how sustaining surrounding communities has long depended on wisely caring for the river environment and its resources.

Organized by the Missouri History Museum. Presented by Bank of America.
