Public and educational programming has been a part of the archaeological research at Riverside since it was developed as a museum in 1993. Riverside offers a variety of opportunities for the public to participate in the ongoing archaeological research. Riverside holds a variety of events each year where the public is invited to tour and participate in the archaeological excavations, such as Archaeology Day, Metro Louisville Cultural Pass Program, and summer Ice Cream Social.

Riverside also offers educational opportunities for students and teachers. The “Building Blocks of History” field trip program provides three activities for school children in one four hour field trip, including a house tour, a dig associated with ongoing archaeological research, and a brick making activity.
