The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mississippi River Project will soon be giving tours of the Historic Clock Tower on Arsenal Island. Folks learning about the clock tower are allowed to climb to the top where there is a spectacular view of the Mississippi River and Bald Eagles who visit the area during the winter.
Tours will be offered every Saturday and Sunday from January 19 through February 10. There will be two tours a day, at 9:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The tour will last about an hour and a half and be guided by a Corps Park Ranger. Tours are free of charge and will start at the Mississippi River Visitor Center on the western end of Arsenal Island at Locks and Dam #15.
You must register in advance by calling (309) 794-5338. Everyone ages 16 and older must carry a photo ID to enter the island.
