Mississippi River Visitor Center
A series of locks and dams makes it possible to navigate the Mississippi River. You can learn more about them at this information center and museum in Rock Island. Depending on the time of year, it’s also a great place to observe raptors and other birds, given its location on the Mississippi Flyway. Note that you’ll need to show identification on the approach to Arsenal Island and Locks & Dam 15.
