An Academy-Award-winning documentary, artifacts and exhibits re-create the Johnstown Flood of May 31, 1889 in which 2,209 people died. It's a story of great tragedy and triumphant recovery, retaining a hold on the popular imagination even today. You'll also see a restored Oklahoma House, an early form of prefabricated housing used to shelter flood survivors. The museum's building is the former Cambria Library, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, and was built by Andrew Carnegie in the flood's aftermath (as such, it was one of the first Carnegie Libraries in the world). The Johnstown Flood Museum is part of the Johnstown Discovery Network, a linked system of attractions and historic districts - tickets also include admission to the Heritage Discovery Center, Johnstown Children's Museum, and Wagner-Ritter House & Garden.
