“great movies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

usually during the winter months we visit the center a few times. the displays are wonderful as well as the big screen movies which are documentaries about nature. there are three different movies shown at different times. the movies change about every 3-4 months or so. the center is free but there is a fee for the movies. great place!

“The displays were great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

They have put a lot of work into this great facility. We spent many hours here reading and learning. Watched a good show on Lake Erie and saving the sturgeons. Liked the view from the tower also

“A must for every PA resident!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I have been to the TREC a few times and each visit has been really educational and fun! I love the gift store and since I travel to see lighthouses, I was so glad they could stamp my "lighthouse passport"!!
