PHMC Reponse / COVID-19

Due to the Governor’s order regarding COVID-19, the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum offices throughout the State continue to be closed through Thursday, April 30, 2020. During this time, visitation at all sites is suspended. PHMC staff continues to work remotely and will respond inquiries received via voice mail and email as soon as possible.

Due to the COVIV-19 Pandemic, the Keystone Summer Internship Program has been suspended until further notice.

Any changes affecting visitation or other PHMC operations will be communicated quickly via PHMC and affiliates’ digital and social channels. Visit PHMC online or follow us on FacebookTwitterInstagram, and LinkedIn.
