All children visiting the Johnstown Children’s Museum must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.


Admission to the Johnstown Children’s Museum is $9 for adults, $7 for seniors and $7 for children from 3-18 (children 2 and under are free). Admission covers all exhibits and amenities at the Heritage Discovery Center, including “America: Through Immigrant Eyes,” the Iron & Steel Gallery, second-floor galleries and fifth-floor galleries. Those who live in the area may wish to consider JAHA membership, as membership benefits include free admission to all JAHA museums as many times as you’d like to come for a full year.

You may also purchase a ticket to both the Johnstown Children’s Museum/Heritage Discovery Center and the Johnstown Flood Museum, which is also operated by the Johnstown Area Heritage Association, for $12 for adults, $10 for students, or $10 for seniors. Tickets must be used within a 5-day period. The Johnstown Flood Museum is located about a half-mile from the Heritage Discovery Center. Museum staff will be happy to direct you.
