Shop Local and Save 20% on a Mississippi River Museum Membership
Tis' the Season to Shop Locally! Dubuque and the Tri-States are incredibly fortunate to have abundant opportunities to find that perfect gift that shows you care about the recipient while supporting local-owned-businesses.
During the next couple of weeks, we will explore some excellent gift-buying options, such as those presented by the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium.
Save 20% on the gift of an Annual Membership. This is the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year!
Gift shopping at the favorite museum helps support the non-profit's mission to educate visitors about America's most fabled river.
Your gift purchases help provide resources to care for the animals (including several endangered species), preserve historic structures and artifacts, and support new initiatives, exhibits, and programs.
All National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium members receive unlimited free admission to the River Museum AND the Mathias Ham Historic Site for a whole year, plus discounts on programs, food and beverage purchases, store purchases, film tickets, and reciprocal discounts at participating zoos & aquariums nationwide!
It's a tremendous value with access to fantastic exhibits and annual events. Membership starts at just $48 for an individual pass and $72 for a Dual Pass. The Family membership options start at just $116.
Would you like to surprise someone or host a behind-the-scenes tour? In that case, check out the museum and aquarium's 1-hour tour that allows six individuals an exciting peek at the internal operations. Then, spend time with one of the experienced aquarists as you visit various rooms used to care for and house the living animal collections. The cost of the tour is $125 and must be pre-booked.
For that unique gift, shop one of the museum stores for one-of-a-kind apparel, housewares, jewelry, children's science kits, board games, books, puzzles, stocking stuffers, wine, and more.
The River Museum Stores are open at the same hours as the River Museum and do not require general admission.
Happy Holidays and thanks for shopping locally!
