This is an indoor and outdoor museum. It is open year round Wednesday through Sunday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. It is closed on some Federal holidays, so go to the site (just type in Pennsylvania Lumber Museum) for all the information and ongoing events. If you've been there in the past, go back; it's been renovated wonderfully and... 更多
We were visiting Colter State Park and stopped in here. The visit was well worth the time. We learned a lot about logging in Pa history. The museum is new and the exhibits are well done. Outdoors there are many lumbering buildings that have been moved to the site. This is really a great stop.

So very informative, all kinds of "happenings" we didn't know about in Pennsylvania's past. The hemlock/leather tanning story was particularly interesting to... 更多
Good place to learn about Pennsylvania's history. Very enjoyable experience. Would recommend that you add it to the list of things to do when you are in the area.
The four of us were in the area for stargazing and decided to visit this attraction during the day. It was easy to find and well staffed. The building is very new and very well done. Your visit starts with a short video after they take your admission fee (which is a bit steep). After the video you get to... 更多
