Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center

This is the ultimate destination to learn about the science and folklore of weather prediction. With interactive exhibits, groups can climb into a tornado, feel the effects of lightning, become a TV weather forecaster, create a thunderstorm, discover the science behind extreme weather, learn how animals were once used to forecast weather, and more. The new HOW Packs give groups the materials needed for self-guided activities, such as building a weather station and forming a cloud - all contained within a backpack!
