Take a walk along the rivers of the world - meet the people they sustain, hear the stories they reveal and share in the rituals they inspire.

Author Mark Twain wrote of the river: “The Great Mississippi, the majestic, the magnificent Mississippi, rolling its mile-wide tide along, shining in the sun.”

As part of Auckland Museum’s River Lives series, the American Club of Auckland has gathered talented Americans and New Zealanders to showcase some of the rich cultural history of the Mississippi River. Experience rhythms of the Mississippi, jazz, blues, country, Memphis and hillbilly rock, modern dance, Irish clog dancing and readings from American literature.

Atrium entry.
