Has anyone ever visited

Has anyone ever visited the Steamboat Arabia museum in Kansas City?
We have been there a couple of times and have really enjoyed it. the boat sunk in the Missouri river in 1856 and was found by a father and his two sons in 1987. They salvaged alot of the cargo and have restored it and created a great museum around it. It amazed me some of the things they salvaged, we found it very interesting. One of the sons told us the last time we were there 2 or 3 years ago, that they might try and find and salvage another steam boat from farther south on the river.

Smile Steamboat Arabia

We visited it 10-12 years ago. Was great & we talked with one of the men who salvaged it. It was over a mile from the present river in a cornfield & they had to work in the middle of the winter when river level was down. We would go back again to see all the items they brought up including Beaver Hats like new.

It really is a neat museum. They have a lot of neat artifacts and the city Market is a true experience too. They have a wonderful little italian bakery and a few really neat shops plus on Saturday's it is a Farmer's Market and on Sunday's they have an Open Garage/Tag Sale.
