Explore the Mississippi River!
What is a river without a tugboat and barge? Help the captain load his barge with cargo from the dock using a working crane. Can you do it by yourself, or do you need someone to help you? After you load the barge, take a walk on our large-scale bridges. Once again we used inspiration from the Quad Cities for our three large bridges: I-74, Government, and Centennial. Spy the fish swimming under the I-74 Bridge, and play music on the percussive Centennial Bridge.
Trains and railroads play an important role in the life of a river, and our train table rivals the best of them. Wooden tracks wind around the train table filled with the people, places, and bridges of the Quad Cities. Duck under the bridges to get closer to the action. Warning: kids have been known to spend hours here!
