We took our three grandchildren to see the Johnstown Flood Museum on August 16, 2017 and it was a perfect addition to the visit of the Johnstown Flood Memorial Museum at South Fork, PA. The movie is different and gives you the feeling that you...More

The movie was very informative, and a guide there also really knew his stuff. The displays were well done for the most part. I guess I was expecting more, though I probably shouldn't have given the local economy.

Visited here after seeing the Park Service flood memorial. I was surprised to see how small the museum is and how dated the exhibits are. The major thing that angered me was how pushy one of the volunteers was. He was going to give a...More

We went through slowly, took in the excellent film and exhibits and it was about 2 hours, maybe a tad over. Very good presentations, very interesting museum.
