Group Tours

Nestled in the densely forested Allegheny high plateau region, near mile marker 188 between Galeton and Coudersport, is the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum. The Museum tells the story of the Commonwealth’s rich lumbering history and promotes the ongoing care, management, and recreational use of the forests. The Visitor Center contains the Challenges and Choices exhibit with interactive elements and historic tools and photographs. The outdoor exhibits include a 20th century logging camp, a Shay locomotive, and a 1910 Barnhart log loader. There is a lot to see and do on 160 acre property.

We are open 9am to 5 PM Wednesday through Sunday. (Closed on Monday and Tuesday). We are open year-round. Please call (814)435-2652 or email palumbermuseum@gmail.com to schedule your tour today!

Student Tours

Critical thinking and historical empathy are two of the many benefits of visiting a museum. Historical empathy, sensitivity to what life was like for people who lived in a different time and place, is honed on a tour of the historic lumber camp. Being observant is an important skill that students practice when they are introduced to a new tool or trail. Our staff is able and ready to get students excited about history and natural science!
