    Great time, the kids loved it. There is lots to do and see! Dubuque has a wonderful history.

    The “4D experience” was just ridiculous. We splurged for both Ice Age and Salmon Run. Ice Age (15 min) wasn’t even in 3D. Salmon Run started with 5 minutes of scenic shots and then 10 minutes of the actual film. Basically, the seats shook a tiny bit a couple of times during Ice Age…yet not at times when it would have been most effective. Both films included being misted with water. A complete and total waste of money–$9 per person for the “double feature.” Lamest thing I’ve ever spent money on. While the center was open until 6pm, the WM Black dredge boat closed at 3:30. Had we been told that at admission, we would have gone there first. But we weren’t told, so walked out at 5pm to find it closed. That added insult to injury after the joke of the 4D debacle. A clean facility in good condition with good exhibits. Just avoid the 3D/4D theater and make sure to ask when outdoor exhibits close.

    The $15 adult admission price initially seemed steep until we realized just how much there is to do here! Two buildings focus on the Mississippi and other rivers throughout human history, as well as their impact on plants and animals. There is plenty to learn through displays, pictures, and videos without having to read too much. Some hands-on experiences for kids complement the outdoor displays, including a can’t miss historic steam boat! Within easy and convenient walking distance of downtown Dubuque.

    This is worth every penny. Spent 2 days here and could probably spend a 3rd. Take the drudge boat tour!
