Falls of the Ohio Interpretive Center
Located in southern Indiana along the Ohio River, the 386-million-year-old fossil beds at Falls of the Ohio State Park are among the largest naturally exposed, easily accessible Devonian fossil beds in the world.
The park's beautiful Interpretive Center overlooks the fossil beds and features many exhibit galleries, Ohio River and coral reef aquariums, and video presentations.
The Interpretive Center opened in 1994.
Even though seventeen years ago is not long in geologic time, for the Center's aging museum exhibits, it's almost two life times. But, the Center is currently in the midst of a capital campaign to raise funds for brand new exhibits. The work will be done by Solid Light, a Louisville business that creates and installs exhibitions, which "Louisville Life" featured in Program 508.
