Our Mission

The Pennsylvania Lumber Museum educates the public about the Commonwealth’s rich lumbering history and the ongoing care, management, and recreational use of its forests. Visitors are encouraged to explore the museum’s working historic saw mill, recreated lumber camp, exhibits, public programs and collections to discover the relevance of history in their lives. The Pennsylvania Lumber Museum is administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and is actively supported by the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum Associates which is a non-profit community-based organization.

Explore our historic saw mill, birch distillery, recreated lumber camp, and Challenges & Choices exhibit. Discover the legacy of the lumber industry in our state. Pack a lunch, bring your hiking shoes, and dress for the weather. You could spend up to two hours in the indoor and outdoor exhibits at the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum!
