The center features fun, interactive exhibits, as well as maps, video monitors, informative wall panels, and family-friendly displays. A new outdoor component, the Pottstown RiverWalk, features interpretive signs along a one-mile loop trail. Signs provide information on birds, wildlife, woodlands, recreation and watersheds in a beautiful setting.

•A table with a relief map of the Heritage Area and touch screen monitors with narrated tours of tourist sites related to the three revolutions.

•Text, graphics, displays and video related to: the Philadelphia Campaign during the American Revolution; the region’s coal mining and manufacturing history during the Industrial Revolution; and the environmental cleanup that saved the Schuylkill in the mid-20th century during the Environmental Revolution.
