Heritage Discovery Center

Explore the geography of the eastern United States… with your feet! The Earthwalk Explorer lets adults and kids experience projections of mountain ranges, forests, rivers and lakes, state borders, cities, trails, and cultural features. Putting your “feet to earth,” you can trek across the spines of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Alleghenies, or Adirondacks, or follow the river valleys of the Susquehanna, James, or Hudson. You can touch the highest point in the state with their fingers or point out your hometowns with your toes. The Explorer uses a horizontal scale of 1 inch = 3.88 miles.

Kids and adults alike will love this temporary exhibition, which opens on the second floor of the Heritage Discovery Center on June 18. You must wear socks to experience it! The exhibition’s multimedia program, which is about 30 minutes long, runs on a one-hour cycle which will start at 15 minutes past the top of the hour, beginning at 10:15 am. The last program will begin at 3:15 pm.
