The River Discovery Center is located in Paducah's historic downtown at the riverfront and overlooks the confluence of the Ohio and Tennessee rivers. The Center is dedicated to educating about the importance of our rivers through interactive exhibits including a state-of-the-art boat simulator, the only one of its kind in the state of Kentucky. Other exhibits touch on the history, natural environment, culture and economy of our rivers. The Center's museum shop offers a great selection of books, nautical gifts, and educational games and toys.

The River Discovery Center is open Monday-Saturday throughout the year and on Sunday from 1:00 - 5:00 PM April - November. Group rates are available, please contact the River Discovery Center for assistance.
