The Steamboat Arabia Museum

The Steamboat Arabia was a side wheeler steamboat built in 1853, and was capable of carrying a full 222 tons of cargo. It hit a large walnut tree just below the water level in the Missouri River on September 5, 1856, and sank near current-day Parkville, Missouri. Thousands of artifacts from the cargo and the steamboat were recovered, and are displayed in the Steamboat Arabia Museum, which is located in the River Market district of Kansas City, Missouri.
