  • Another one of those places I should have visited a long time ago. Can actually see how the lumber industry worked years ago. They display and explain how it was done. If ever in the area, don't miss ...  read more »
  • We were looking forward to visiting this museum, but were disappointed in the total visit. We thought the $8 to get in, was steep for the experience. The movie and the exhibits in the visitor's center...  read more »
  • My husband is a cabinet maker, and a friend recommended this museum almost as a little joke (you get the idea). We went in almost on a whim, and boy were we surprised! We spent two hours there! So ver...  read more »
  • The recent renovation has proved to be an exceptional change. The museum is great! It is laid out well, it is interactive (children will like it), and of course very informative. It is modern and education. I recommend stopping here!
  • There is a lot to see for the cost of admission. Their exhibits are very educational if you take the time to read them. If you just want to look at things quickly you can get through in a couple hours or less, but if you take the time to read everything you can easily be there for four hours or more. Also, they have nice picnic areas that if we had known about them ahead of time we would have brought lunch with us. They do sell snacks and souvenirs, but not anything to constitute a meal.
  • This is one of my favorite places to go, especially since the renovation. I grew up visiting the Lumber Museum, and as a young man, I worked on an old 1800's saw mill and shingle mill.... because of that Pennsylvania's Lumber Heritage is special to me. We visited with our family this year, and really enjoyed the displays!
  • This is a historical. Museum is for everyone to see go.
