Field Trips

Many youth and adults alike have never experienced the awe of “The Mighty Mississippi” and even fewer have gone by the way of the paddle wheel boat. This is an excellent opportunity to do both. Take your students aboard one of the legendary Memphis Riverboats.  A guided history lesson of the Mississippi River. Learn about the tales of the river life spun by Mark Twain, a few of the Mississippi Rivers secrets, and the Sultana (the worst American maritime disaster to date).
