“Journey of Imagination and Exploration of America’s Waterways in RiverWorks Discovery” traveling exhibit will be at the Arabia Steamboat Museum through May 21.
This interactive and educational exhibit is designed to teach the importance of commerce, culture, and conservation on America’s inland waterways. The exhibit invites visitors to learn about the uses of rivers and the wildlife that live in and around them. Visitors and students will learn about valuable STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts, such as conservation, ecosystems, and sedimentation, through interactive experiences.
The exhibit helps children discover the ever-changing relationship between people and rivers. As visitors explore the exhibit, they will enjoy playing river songs, noodle a catfish, learn how to help preserve and protect our rivers, and more.
A limited number of free field trips will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Educators should contact the museum at 816-471-1856 to reserve their spot.
Access for the general public to the RiverWorks exhibit is included with Museum admission: $14.50 for adults; $13.50 for ages 60 and older; $5.50 for ages 4 to 14; and free for ages 3 and under.
