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
