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!

Attention: As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to be open Thurdays, Fridays, and Saturdays only from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. As time goes on, we hope to restore our full operating hours.
