We just visited this museum this morning. It's an atypical museum in that it's not a series of rooms with curated exhibits. The charm of the museum lies in the guides who've been part of the steel industry for decades and are knowledgeable about Rebecca Lukens (an amazing story of an unlikely female industrialist), the steel and iron operations of the area, the residences of past owners of Luken steel--three wonderful houses reflecting the period they were built in, and how the steel produced by the steel mill is used. This was an intergenerational trip-- 9 and 11-year old kids and grandparents in the 70s and we all enjoyed it. Fun place for anyone who likes even a bit of history.
