Please see the calendar below for the current operating schedules of the Johnstown Flood Museum, Heritage Discovery Center/Johnstown Children’s Museum. The Heritage Discovery Center/Johnstown Children’s Museum is open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday only; the Johnstown Flood Museum is open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Visitors to the Johnstown Children’s Museum (which is located on the third floor of the Heritage Discovery Center) are encouraged to RSVP 539-1889 before your visit, as we are limiting the number of families in the museum at any given time — see the children’s museum COVID information page for details on our scheduling and safety protocol. RSVPs are not needed to visit the Johnstown Flood Museum or the other attractions in the Heritage Discovery Center.

In accordance with PA guidelines, visitors and employees must wear masks, and are asked to observe social distancing while in our facilities. We are taking additional steps to ensure safety, such as sanitizing surfaces frequently. Welcome!

 

Membership

Becoming a JAHA member helps us continue our important work -- and has great benefits, too.

Your year-long membership entitles you to a wide range of benefits, including admission to all our museums, as many times as you’d like to come; special discounts on ticketed events; and more, depending the level you choose.

What’s more, as of December 2019 JAHA is part of the Reciprocal Organization of Associated Museums (ROAM), which entitles members at the Family level or higher to ROAM benefits. You’ll get free admission to more than 300 museums across North America — including several notable institutions in Pittsburgh: the Carnegie Art Museum, the Andy Warhol Museum, the National History Museum, and the Frick. Visit ROAM’s website for a complete list of participating museums.
