River Reflections

What do you see when you look at the river? Do you see explorers and fur trappers aboard pirogues, flatboats, and keelboats? Do you see the banks of the rivers crowded with people and cargo anticipating the arrival of the next steamboat? Or, do you see a barge transporting vital supplies to millions who live along its corridor?

This is the Mississippi River, past and present. Join a National Park Service ranger for a 60-minute cruise aboard the Gateway Arch Riverboats, and actively explore the history, culture, and future of this great American river. There is a fee charged fo rriverboat programs.

River Reflections is offered Tuesdays through Thursdays during the months of March, April, May, September and October. Thirty-day advance reservations are required. Please call 314.655.1700, extenstion 5. There is a boarding fee for Gateway Arch Riverboat.

For Gateway Arch Riverboat cruises without the educational component, visit gatewayarch.com. The River Ramble program is made possible by a partnership with Metro and Jefferson National Parks Association.
