The Chilo Lock 34 Visitor Center and Museum occupies the former operations building at the former Ohio River Lock and Dam #34, which closed in 1964. The Clermont County Park District renovated the building and opened the Visitor Center and Museum in 2005. “Living and Working with the Ohio River” is the theme for many of the interactive exhibits and displays. The Visitor Center is home to the Park District’s annual Chili Cook-off in October and celebrates spring with its season-opening festivities the second Saturday in April (April 14 in 2018). In August of 2018, the Visitor Center and Museum will host Steamboatin’ Days, a month-long celebration featuring new exhibits, lectures and live entertainment.
