  • Great capture of a moment in time but be warned that the movie is pretty disturbing. We would not recommend taking children to see the film.  more »

  • Very powerful exhibit and information about the tradgety of 1889 flood. To understand it and raise awareness is a wonderful way to honor the memory of the victims and the town's resilience. The film is very powerful experience and highlights the true horror of the flood; not great for kids or sensitive viewers, bit very powerful and sobering experience. The Junior Ranger program (takes an hour or less) is very good and is based on age.
  • I have always loved history and have watched this place grow since it opened. The rangers do a great job.
  • One of the best monuments to a sad time in history. You must stay and see the movie.
  • Very Scenic! A great place to take the whole family. My fair warning is the movie can be scary for children under the age of 10. This is by far the best place to go to learn about the Johnstown Flood. There is a location in downtown Johnstown, but doesn't have as much information on the flood. There also is a place to have a picnic when the weather is nice.
  • Great info and movie about 1889 flood. I wish they would add info on the other 2 floods.
