Southern Ohio Museum and Cultural Center
Travel along the mighty Ohio to explore the historical, cultural and natural wonders along the river’s banks.
If you’re in a mood for visual art, wander into the Southern Ohio Museum and Cultural Center in Portsmouth. In addition to its permanent exhibits on the paintings of American scene artist Clarence Carter (born in Portsmouth in 1904), historical photographs of Portsmouth taken by Carl Ackerman and artifacts up to 8,000 years old crafted by Hopewell and Adena Indians, there are five visiting exhibitions this spring and summer, including several by Ohio artists. See if you can catch a performance by Cirque d’Art, a group of local teen acrobats.
