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!

JAHA at Home: Russell Shorto and Richard Burkert discuss “Smalltime”

JAHA at Home: Russell Shorto and Richard Burkert discuss “Smalltime”

On Feb. 11, 2021, Russell Shorto discussed his new book, “Smalltime: A Story of My Family and the Mob,” with Richard Burkert, JAHA president. There was great interest in this virtual presentation, and we reached the webinar’s 250 capacity. We are grateful to Russell and to the Cambria County Library, which co-hosted the event, for allowing us to post the recording of the conversation for anyone who was unable to attend!

Further, JAHA’s March raffle includes a chance to win an autographed copy of Smalltime, as well as other great prizes. Get tickets at the button below — the drawing will be on Mar. 31! Smalltime is also available in the gift shops of the Heritage Discovery Center and Johnstown Flood Museum.
