The Johnstown Flood Museum and Heritage Discovery Center/Johnstown Children’s Museum are adopting winter opening hours beginning the week of Jan. 3. We will be open Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 am-5 pm, and Sun. noon-5 pm (closed Tuesday and Wednesday). Because Cambria County is currently experiencing high community spread of COVID-19, we are now requiring staff and visitors to wear masks (face shields alone are not adequate). Please visit the children’s museum COVID protocols page for more information specific to that museum. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Welcome!
