American Queen Steamboat Company – Upper Mississippi River Cruises
Towering six-decks tall, the American Queen steamboat is the largest steamboat ever built and the only remaining overnight passenger steamer in America. Salvaged from the sunken 1932 Kennedy steamboat, in the Missouri River, the 19th century steam engines attest to its authenticity and the ingenuity of American engineering. A magnificent recreation of a classic Mississippi riverboat, the American Queen carries forward the legacy of preceding steamers with grace and elegance.
Offering an exclusive historic narrative, the largest collection of Tiffany lamps in the country can be found on board, along with an original Mark Twain Gallery and a history library of 1800s American river travel. Affording Victorian elements and southern charm, the American Queen Steamboat exemplifies American history and culture throughout its design and character, celebrating the unique experience of river travel.
