UPDATE ON COVID-19 from the PHMC
Due to the Governor’s order regarding COVID-19, the Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum offices and museums throughout the State are closed through Thursday, April 30, 2020. During this time, visitation at all sites is suspended, and all public programs and events are canceled. Buildings and grounds are being monitored for security purposes.
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!
