Welcome

to the Punxsutawney Weather
Discovery Center!

Punxsutawney – home of the world-famous furry weather forecaster – is also known as “The Weather Capital of the World.” That makes us the ultimate destination to learn how the science and folklore of weather prediction collide!

Current open days and hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Home school tours, bus tours, cyber school tours, and any larger (greater than 10) groups of visitors are encouraged to contact us ahead of time and arrange to visit, if possible, on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday when our facility will be open only for your group. 

Please click here to view our health and safety policies and procedures for our visitors prior to your visit.
