Upcoming Events

Drake Well Museum and Park, a Museum & Historic Site owned and administered by the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC), will follow the directives developed in conjunction with the Governor’s Office, Department of Health, and the Department of General Services. Unfortunately, this means that the site is closed to all visitors until further notice. In addition group events, tours and facility rentals are cancelled during this time as well. The Museum can be reached during regular business hours by calling 814-827-2797.


Until we can meet in-person again, join us online for virtual events. 

More 2020 virtual events to be announced soon!
