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!

Introducing Membership Mondays: A new way of adding value to your JAHA membership

Now more than ever, JAHA is grateful for the support of our members! We miss seeing our members in our museums and at our programs, and are looking forward to the point when we can reopen safely.

Because we haven’t been able to see you in person, the staff has been working diligently from our respective homes to put together content for the public so you can enjoy some of our museum experience from home. We launched JAHA at Home, programming that includes virtual classroom activities, tours, activities, and digitized materials.

We are now introducing a new way of adding value to your JAHA membership: Membership Mondays. In fact, we plan to continue with this new benefit even after our physical locations are open, and our events can resume once more. At least monthly (and sometimes more often), members will receive an email with a link to new, exciting virtual content on our blog – newly digitized images, videos, and more. Some of this content will be member-access only, and some will be sneak peeks of upcoming content, before being released to the general public.

The first Membership Monday post is here!
