In this Dec. 18, 2012 photograph, visitors to the Lower Mississippi River Museum in Vicksburg, Miss., have the opportunity to sit at a captain's chair in the pilot house of the Motor Vessel Mississippi IV, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers towboat that floated up and down the Mississippi River. The museum provides visitors with a extensive look at life surrounding the Mississippi River through several centuries by way of its interactive and static displays, while the Motor Vessel Mississippi IV exhibits show how crews worked and lived on the towboats.
