  • Nice museum that gives you a history lesson about the lumber industry in Pennsylvania. Watched a short orientation video then saw some inside exhibits about the history of the lumber industry and state forests in Pennsylvania before checking out the outside exhibits. Outside exhibits were cool and included an engine house with locomotives and tracks, a lumber camp, a saw mill, a pond, and CCC cabins.
  • Great museum in middle nowhere. This should be at popular highway, but I assume they build this where they had stuff for museum to show. Kids can enjoy, I should say Elementary + ages.
  • Lovely place, friendly and helpful staff. Always something to learn about and look at when there. Great for families and those who love history.
  • Very interesting. Have a lot of information about the logging activities in the area over the years. Very well worth the trip.
  • Very interesting exhibits. I enjoyed it.
