If you like local history, give this a look. Volunteers guide you through the building and discuss the history of the area. There's a toy room downstairs.

The museum is fun for all ages. It's worth the trip just to see the handmade carnival set up. The tour guide made the experience fun for the kids. They could even touch and hold some of the things on display.

Loved visiting the Museum. The building used to house the town library, and it is beautiful with lots of original woodwork and architectural details. The volunteers at the museum are very happy to share information and to assist with genealogical searches.

The Potter County Historical Society is housed on North Main Street, Coudersport, PA, in a large building filled with interesting things from days of old. The staff is volunteers who know their history of the surrounding area and are excellent caretakers of all these treasures.

As with most county historical societies & museums, the Potter County Historical Society's focus is on the history of the county and some of its more prominent residents, merchants, etc. What is surprising is how much they have. They have many artifacts and 2 floors...More

Huge place with extensive collection of Potter County artifacts. Absolutely the best historical tour we have had anywhere. One of largest collections I've seen; I'd compare their collection to a state museum. If you want your kids to learn about PA history, beyond the textbooks...More

We loved it here. When we arrived the normal guide wasn't there but the chap (and am so sorry didn't get his name) who works in the office let us in and showed us around. He was brilliant and we actually spent nearly 2 hours...More
