Hours and Prices

The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC) will begin welcoming visitors to state-owned historic sites and museums, including Drake Well Museum and Park on Friday, April 30, 2021.

As we open our sites to the public, we have adjusted our operations to provide a safer environment for staff, volunteers, and visitors and to prevent or mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, hours of operation will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM EST. 

Recreational areas are open from dawn to dusk year-round.

Our staff has taken great measures to make the Museum a safe, healthy, and family-friendly environment for our visitors. Please review our COVID-19 Guidelines for Guests before visiting the museum or grounds.
