    The Steamship Arabia Museum

    salvage from Missouri Mud

    Go to the River Market area near the Missouri River and pay a visit to the Arabia Steamship Museum. It was a paddlewheeler laden with cargo that sunk in the 1850s and was buried in the mud of the riverbed. In the last decade it was 'rediscovered' and brought back to the surface by a team of extremely enterprising entrepreneurs and archeologists.
