I joined the heritage center last year and have not regretted it. The membership pays for itself in no time. They have many and varied programs throughout the year. Most programs are great for all ages. Members receive free admission to most programs. Worth the trip.

Our family is from the Weisenberg and Low Hill Townships in Leigh County. They settles here in the late 18th century and left in the early 19th Century. We have been doing research for nearly 40 years on the family. There were some missing pieces so we stopped here to see if we could find anything new. We explained why... More

This is a nice little museum, it has a lot of exhibits of the history of the local Allentown PA area, for locals, it is pretty cool to see how the town has grown up over the years, and to see things that really no longer exist. There are sometimes special exhibits. Parking is an issue, there are few parking... More

We decided to visit the museum to see the Mort Kunstler display. The gentleman at the ticket desk explained the benefits and value of membership, so we signed up to become members and received a free Mort Kunstler calendar. The museum itself is small. The displays are interesting and well done. The viewing of the Kunstler paintings was not as... More

Displays are well assembled and informative. The library is a wonderful assembly of a world full of information for the researcher and history lover. Great place to learn about the Lehigh Valley and their speakers are very educational and interesting. What a treasure!

If you like local history and background on the area this is a good place to start. My wife was more into it than I was and her rating would be higher. There is an historical building on site that we wanted to see but it was not open that day which was disapointing.

Every library is different so save time by asking for assistance in navigating the publications. If you tell them what you are looking for, they will lead you to specific pubs. The library is located in a building that also has museums and books for sale. Parking is free behind the building. We used a coupon and got $1 off... More

This is a small place in the middle of downtown, but it has some real nice informative displays. The admission is not large. We enjoyed the Lincoln artifact and photo exhibit, but be advised that this will be leaving shortly, but I'm sure will be replaced. The Revolutionary war exhibit was nice. The history of the Lehigh Valley is quite... More

My wife and I visited the Center today and found it fascinating. It is well done and ven we as non-Americans could follow and understand. I hope that US Citizens are proud of the Center - you need to be.

This center was very impressive. Lehigh County has very interesting history and they have done an excellent job in portraying it. Beautiful and informative exhibits. Much higher quality than one would usually expect in a county museum. The adjacent Library has a real expert in local history and archives who is adept at helping one research family history in the... More
