Has anyone been to the Johnstown Flood museum?
Yes, I have been to the Johnstown Flood Museum located at 304 Washington Street. If you haven't been, I urge you to visit it. The fiber optic map shows you the path of the flood and and there is a wealth of other information to be gained at the museum as well as having the opportunity to view the Academy Award winning documentary film about the Johnstown Flood of 1889 by Charles Guggenheim. Also, included in the price to visit the museum, you also gain admission to the Heritage Discovery Center located at 201 Sixth Avenue. Here are links to both:
I recommend that you do the Johnstown Flood Museum on Washington Street, then take a ride on the Incline Plane nearby. It's about a 4 or 5 block walk, but not far. You can ride to the top of it and stand on the visitor platform and see the path that the flood waters took and get a better understanding of just how bad the flood was. Plus you'll see the stone bridge where all of the debris piled up and many people lost their lives especially when the debris caught fire. The bridge is lit with laser lights after dark and it's different colors depending on the theme for the day. There is also a nice restaurant atop the Incline where you can have lunch before riding back down. Then take the ride to South Fork and visit the museum there, watch the movie, and walk the dam trail. It makes for a wonderful day.
