New Feature!



An abundance of culture lies ready for exploration at this terrific museum, which couples art and science in an impressive, historic depot set along the Mississippi. Permanent and temporary art collections go hand-in-hand with interactive galleries where children can delve into scientific principles, a center for space discovery, an exhibit on ancient Egypt, and a hands-on play area for young kids. The planetarium offers films and programs on the universe, and the whole experience is supplemented with a variety of workshops, lectures, and special events.
