River Film

At the back of the museum complex, visitors may enjoy a film called Rivers: Heart of our Nation. This 17-minute film is an overview of the importance of the river in our daily lives. Guests will learn about river history, flooding, recreation on the river, hydro-electric power and the towing industry.   Immediately adjacent to the theater is the lobby which is now housed in a former livery from the late 1800’s.    One original wall of the space allows visitors to see the original “false-front” roofline. Also of interest are the antique chandeliers which were from the 1800’s and restored from gas to electric fixtures.  This lobby space serves as a revolving art exhibit space with exhibits changing approximately every 60 days.
