The PA Lumber Museum is located in Potter Co. along US Route 6, MM 188 between Galeton and Coudersport. The museum tells the story of the PA's rich lumbering history and promotes the ongoing care, management, and recreational use of its forests. The museum visitor center, renovated in 2015, includes thousands of objects ranging from prehistoric stone tools to 20th century chain saws. Interactive exhibits allow visitors to simulate chopping and sawing a tree, piloting a log raft and racing locomotives. Buildings and exhibits located throughout the 160-acre museum property include a replica late 19th century logging camp, a 70-ton Shay geared-locomotive, and a 1910 Barnhart log loader. A log cabin build by the CCC in 1936 showcases the talents and craftsmanship of those dedicated citizens. Other exhibits include a steam sawmill and log pond, a 1945 Brookville switch engine, and a Sustainable Forestry Trail that loops through 40-acres of forest surrounding Commissioner's Run.
