Plan a Visit to Harmony, Pennsylvania
NOTE: the Harmony Museum will be closed Friday October 4 through Monday October 7. We will reopen normal hours on Tuesday October 8.
Harmony is just 30 minutes and 200 years away from the big city. Founded in 1804, Harmony is still alive with the big history of this small town. There are lots of ways to get to know us better.
Visit the Harmony Museum
The Harmony Museum is located at the intersection of Mercer St. and Main St. and there is free visitor parking along the side of the building in our lot. The Museum is open for tours Tuesday through Sunday from 1 to 4 pm. To learn more details, visit our Museum Tour page.
Properties We Preserve
We are the Historic Harmony, Inc. organization and we own and preserve 9 properties in the Harmony area. From the main Harmony Museum building with its unique wine cellar to a cemetery with only one headstone we have some pretty cool stuff to come see.
Please note that not all properties are included with the museum tour. Visit our Museum Properties page to learn more information about each site, as well as access our interactive map for easier navigation to each location.
Harmony Walking Tour
There are lots of historic buildings in the Harmony area, though most of these are privately owned properties, you can still enjoy the walk around Harmony while reading the history of each place and imagine what it must have been like back in the 1800’s. Visit our Walking Tour page to learn more information about the town of Harmony and the surrounding area, as well as access our Walking Tour Map.
Visit our Museum Shop
What museum would be complete without a gift shop! Ours is located in a separate building from the museum itself, allowing guests to shop even when the museum is closed. We are located in the building across the parking lot from the museum, at 222 Mercer St. We have lots of unique, affordable items, so you are sure to find the perfect gift for yourself or others. Discover more about our Museum Shop.
Our volunteer weavers are located in a quaint log cabin at the intersection of Mercer St. and Spring St. (almost directly across from the Harmony Inn). Drop in and hear the history of weaving and spinning and watch as our volunteers create items on looms. Learn more information about Weaver’s Cabin.
Learning about our ancestors is an exciting undertaking, but also time consuming. If you would like to access our library we ask that you make an appointment with the museum administrator to do so. If you just drop in without and appointment, there may not be anyone available at the museum office. You can call ahead (724) 452-7341 or use our Contact Us form to send an email.
While you are walking through the town, be sure to stop in our wonderful businesses here. This is small business shopping at its best! For more details about the local shops and eateries, visit the Harmony Business Association, link to http://harmonybusinessassociation.com/ or pick up their brochure at most shops in town.
