Individual and Bus Tours

JAHA welcomes individual group and bus tours!

The Johnstown Flood Museum is our flagship attraction, and the flood story attracts many people to Johnstown for the first time. But there’s much more to see and do locally, including the Heritage Discovery Center/Johnstown Children’s Museum, Wagner-Ritter House & Garden, and more! This website provides details on what these attractions have to offer. Call 39-1889 ext. 311 and our Director of Visitor Services will help customize an itinerary for you.

Additional Group Services

We provide many tour options for groups and can be very flexible with times if needed. If you would like to book a tour on a day that the museums are traditionally closed or during off hours, please call for pricing. If you would like to host a lunch during your tour, we can help you. Please call ahead for lunch options and details.

Step-on guides have worked with the Johnstown Area Heritage Association for many wonderful tours. Your guide can meet your bus at any Johnstown-area attraction, and share fascinating stories about the flood and Johnstown’s history as you travel between attractions. Please call for details.

Free, dedicated bus parking is available.
