Learn about the role the Schuylkill River region played in three revolutions: the American, Industrial and Environmental. 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.
