May's Exhibit

The Blairstown Museum's exhibits are more than just a display of artifacts – the pieces housed within our walls convey the story of the Blairstown experience. Both diverse and unique, they prompt us to think critically and challenge our conceptions of the Greater Blairstown Area and the people who lived here.

Our permanent and rotating exhibits serve great purpose in the community. Carefully researched and impeccably presented, our themed exhibitions provide some of the best opportunities to connect with our history.

Here is what you'll see at The Blairstown Museum right now:

Fires, Floods, Murders and Movies

This month's exhibit, "Fires, Floods, Murders and Movies", was a popular saying of local historian Helen Hall when the public would ask her what was Blairstown most known for. This month we offer a pictorial exhibit of some of the most devastating, life-altering, and intriguing events in Blairstown's history.

Blairstown Museum Members, Senior Citizens aged 55+; as well as Active Duty, Reserve Members and Veterans of the US Armed Forces will receive a 5% Discount on all Souvenir Shop purchases. Cannot be combined with other offers.

This month's exhibit is kindly sponsored by 4 TRACK Bike - Hike - Hobby, Barber on Main, Christine Oleszek Photography, and Compass Rose Consulting. Visit us this month to learn more about these businesses and their offerings.
