Sample the scent of the 1800's at the gift shop where a reproduction of the French perfume found onboard the Arabia is available for purchase.

Check out this one-of-a-kind museum full of well-preserved treasures from a cargo steamboat that sank in 1856 just north of Kansas City.

Don't let tacky gift shop & food court put you off. it's worth every nickel of admission. Tour guide was superb and take time to listen to the preservation specialist. Fascinating!!!!

Definitely visit this place if you wanna learn some history. You'll be amazed of all the artifacts and history that went along with this boat. Recommend.

The guided tour of the Arabia Steamboat Museum is well worth your time. The story of this boat's history is, if nothing, amazing! Without giving away the story, I will say that when it comes time to hear the part about the mule, your heart will be deep into this true event.

The museum includes a tour in the ticket price. You can also watch items being restored and preserved. The museum is worth a detour, especially if you like seeing a slice of pre-bellum life
