UPDATE ON COVID-19 from the PHMC
The Anthracite Heritage Museum and Scranton Iron Furnaces, properties of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC), remain closed to the public. As part of the Commonwealth’s network, the sites will reopen at the direction of the Governor’s administration.
During the Yellow Phase, the grounds can be accessed for passive and dispersed recreation. Visitors are to follow the governor’s guidelines regarding masking and social distancing, and gatherings are prohibited.
The public can access the Scranton Iron Furnaces for pedestrian recreation; however, all facilities at PHMC sites and museums will be closed—including parking lots, restrooms, and visitor centers.
Thank you for being a good steward of Pennsylvania’s historic sites and museums!
