  • Very interesting place to visit while in Jim Thorpe. Had no idea how the town received its name, and the articles and history was very enlightening.  more »
  • Not crazy about this excursion. We watched a 12 min DVD on on how this town was renamed Jim Thorpe. Several pics of Jim Thorpe himself. Some history on mining...I just wish it had more to offer.  more »
  • For the coal-crackers tourist path, this is one spot to put on the list. If you want an idea for what Mauch Chunk is all about, I suggest checking this place out.  more »

  • Excellent must see heritage site. Lots of interesting artifacts from the area. Very knowledgeable staff. Don't miss this museum.
  • I've attended parties here in the upper ballroom and witnesses many weddings take place here. The high ceilings make the modest space feel lofty yet intimate.
  • Great to visit here early on you time in JT. Lots to learn about the area. Very nice
  • You really have a lot to view in this museum from the old coal mining days & very fascinating to learn about with period artifacts! A MUST!!
  • Don't miss this museum. The town's history is fascinating. And definitely don't miss the town tour with David. Excellent information, entertaining tour.
