  • Worth the visit and the donation for entrance fee but the exhibt has seen better days. I hope the non-profit organization that manages the exhibit can find the funds and vision to make the fixes and update the overall exhibit. I would encourage visiting in order to provide support and learn something new.
  • Powerful experience about the tradgety of the floods but also dedication to the town's resilience. Worth a stop in addition to the National Park Service memorial site 14 miles up the road to the actual dam is good to to help get sense of the scale.
  • Very nice museum. The movie is very informative and I recommend watching it before exploring the museum.
  • I was never in Johnstown before and did not know anything about the flood. This museum was very informative. The debris wall spoke a messenge in itself. The documentary shown here is very good! I highly recommend visiting.
  • Great Museum Guide. This is a must see museum. The preventable flood was a series of human errors compounded by a significant weather event. One of the saddest facts was were 80 souls that had survived the flood in their swept away homes only to get trapped in the 30 acre debris field created by the railroad bridge abutments then caught fire and consumed the survivors. Note, there is a designated free parking area very near the museum. Follow the signs.
