Museum

Discover the essential stories of Berks County

Boasting an impressive collection of over 20,000 items, Berks History Center’s Historical Society Museum has a vast and diverse selection of historical pieces. Visitors can view ornate folk art, furniture, clocks, and tools from Pennsylvania’s Americana Region, all of which come to life in several carefully curated galleries and exhibits. The museum also houses an extensive transportation collection, including bicycles, a rare horse-drawn streetcar, a Conestoga Wagon, and a Duryea automobile.

The museum building is located at 940 Centre Ave. Off-street parking is available across the street at 160 Spring Street, behind the Henry Janssen Research Library.
