Welcome

The Point Pleasant River Museum and Learning Center focuses on river life and commercial enterprise on the Ohio and Kanawha Rivers. The museum has many displays and video demonstrations.  Special guests will highlight topics such as great floods, boat construction, sternwheel steamers, river disasters and the local river industry's contribution to World War II. The museum also offers a pilot house simulator, aquarium and a research library.
The Musuem introduced a second towboat pilot house simulator on April 21. 2015 (see Waterways Journal article)
