Chilo Lock No. 34 Park
Visitor Center and Museum

Located in the three story power house of the old lock No. 34 of Chilo the museum is focusing on working and living on the Ohio River. Hands-on exhibits of a wicket dam and locks and a panoramic view form the observation deck are some of the highlights of the museum. A recent addition to the museum's collection are the steam engines of the lighthouse tender WAKEROBIN (#5680), last operated as the USS NIGHTMARE I by the Bernstein family. The old lock site is surrounded by a beautiful park.
