    Act 48 Workshops for Educators



    • The Johnstown Children's Museum premieres a new train table -- We're delighted to have this new free play area for our young visitors, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Sarah Rutledge of Mt. Aloysius College. (Also, Dr. Rutledge's education students often volunteer in our education department programming). The train table is located near the Mix-Master Studio and dress-up area. All aboard!
