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!

We will begin Monday openings starting with Monday, July 5. Hours will be Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Following CDC guidelines, it is recommended that unvaccinated visitors wear masks during their visit. Thank you for your cooperation!
