Great to see Phil in person, but he needs to be in a more natural setting, not cooped up in an enclosed fake burrow in the town library. It was fun going around trying to find Phil Statues all over town. The people we met...More

This was a bucket list adventure. I got to see Phil the groundhog snoozing in his home. He was so comfy. He opened one eye and took a look at me and then went right back to sleep! Well worth visiting.

Watched groundhog day all though my childhood, great place to stop off and see him in the flesh, free places to park just round the corner.

Felt sorry for the little guy in his city burrow. Thought it would be in the country but it was right in the middle of town at the library. Almost couldn’t find it. Really enjoyed all the groundhog statues around town and wish we had...More

Ok the burrow can be seen from the park outside, or from inside the library ( children’s section). The view is definitely better from inside- clear window. It thrilled me to see Phil and I’m an adult!! If I was a child I’d be in...More

We saw Phil sleeping in his burrow which is inside the local library. It's good for kids and fans of "Groundhog day" film.☺

Was really neat to see the gophers in their burrow. The library that are housed in is very nice inside and can see the gophers from inside the library as well as outside.

Well, it's Punxsutawney, so any tacky display is probably to be expected. This is basically just two windows - one outside and one inside the library - that allow you to look at a sleepy grey groundhog (woodchuck) laying around on some grey rocks. Very...More

Was like looking at the animals at the zoo. When you want to see them active they are fast asleep! There were 2 Phils in the burrow. They must have a backup Phil. Cute stop but would not be worth a special trip to see.
