Museum List

Visit a local museum and view Pennsylvania artifacts that are thousands of years old.

The following is a list of museums in Pennsylvania which have archaeological collections from our state. They represent a wonderful opportunity to observe the material remains of Pennsylvania's historic and prehistoric past. We would suggest that these institutions be contacted for specific types of collections, hours and admission prices.
