One of the coolest places downtown Point Pleasant. The many displays are excellent, highlights include a 2,400 gallon aquarium, a scale model of the silver bridge, and a full-scale towboat pilot house simulator!

The Rivers' industries contributed to the economy of the nation. So grateful for those who created the River Museum to preserve the history ... I highly recommend the Point Pleasant River Museum as a tourist site -- or a place to take your children and grandchildren. The Ole Folks will enjoy reliving their heritage.
