This museum does a beautiful job of presenting local Lehigh Valley history. Prior to coming here we had no idea this community had huge silk mills and was known for cigar making. The temporary exhibit on Presidents is very timely and puts controversy in perspective. The employees at the museum are very proud of this museum and their enthusiasm radiates!... 更多
My husband and I checked this place out once, and joined as a member that same day. Interesting programs, very friendly staff, great place for kids to have fun and learn. Would recommend for every age.

From photographs to forgotten relics, from the special Lincoln exhibit to the giant book sale, this was a highlight of my trip. The staff is incredibly welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The museum is... 更多
