A most interesting place not to miss when in Jim Thorpe PA. Take the guided tour with Bill and Mrs Bill. They are a wealth of knowledge. The switchback model is terrific as are the River lock models. Parking is non existent so plan to walk uphill on uneven sidewalks. Overall well worth the effort.

Cool place up Broadway before you get to the jail. It’s not fancy or large with the exhibits simply presented which I believe was started through the dedication and generosity of its private benefactor. Excellent, personalized history of Mauch Chunk (Jim Thorpe) with lots of memorabilia.

There is a $ 7.50 pp admittance fee but when we were here Friday we had the benefit of a personalized “tour” through the woman hosting/volunteering. She was wonderful and truly made our stop here memorable with her insightful stories and friendly, welcoming style. She really made a memorable difference in learning about the history of Jim Thorpe. Plan on about 45 - 60 minutes here. Suggest you stop in. 👍🏻

OK, you have to be interested in history, but if you are this little place provides a fascinating insight into America's recent industrial past. Who knew that roller coasters were effectively a by-product of coal mining, or that single-use canal barges, recycled at their destination, were economically successful in the 1800's?

This little museum haves us a comprehensive overview of the history of the area, from coal mining and the industrial revolution to tourism and the name change. A great little jewel.

We attended their November Steampunk Fundraiser in which the ballroom was decked out to the likes of Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson. The evening included several activities, such as the art of tea dueling, tarot readings, and the wonderful musical renderings of The Eternal Frontier, along with a delicious buffet. All this was set among the beautiful ballroom scenery of the museum. This is such a great venue for any sort of banquet and we look forward to future events.

We made the museum our first stop on a Tuesday afternoon, since it wouldn’t be open again until after we left on Thursday. This was an excellent decision, and we spent about one and a half hours there. The introductory video gives the basics, but then the guide takes you around the corner into the displays. She was very thorough and enjoyed what she was doing. What we learned here (all about the switchback railroad and Jim Thorpe among other things) served us well for the next two days.

A great value at 7.50 PP. Husband and wife docents are great. Introductory movie. Working models of a lock and the switchback railroad illustrate these things perfectly. Other interesting displays to see as well.

The museum did a good job of explaining how Mauch Chunk got's its name from the Lenape Indians, how the town went through economic prosperity from the discovery of anthracite coal in the region and the town becoming a shipping port first through the canal and then the railroad. They explained how when coal was no longer king the town had a severe economic downturn. Then how the name change to Jim Thorpe occurred and how the economic prosperity they thought would occur it did not. Then they discussed how local people were able to envision a new town and how over time the town has become a tourist destination. They also covered the history of the switchback railroad.

My mothers family came from Mauch Chunk so I have been coming to visit this are for a long time, even 45 years after my grandmother has past away. As a young man my mothers father worked on the switchback operating the cars. He used to tell stories that if the riders treated him nicely he would go the regular speed but if they were not respectful he would go faster than normal so the women's hair would blow around and everyone's clothes would get a bit messed up.

My reason for not giving a very good rating is I did not see anything on Dr. Bertine S. Erwin who today is not well known except for the ruins of his castle which was seven stories and had 21 rooms and located on Hill Road. He discovered uranium in the area and a cure for croup which had been a death sentence.

The museum was staffed by a very nice couple who were very knowledgeable about the history of town. There was a short movie that we enjoyed watching as well as number of old tools, pictures and other artifacts.

We arrived just before they were due to close but the guide was really helpful and gave us a whistlestop tour round. Interesting to hear more about the history of the town.
