Located in McDade Park in Scranton, The Anthracite Heritage Museum tells the story of the people who came from Europe to work in the anthracite mining and textiles industries. On a tour of the facility visitors will experience the lives of proud people who endured harsh working conditions yet carved out communities filled with tradition.   The diverse collection highlights life in the mines, mills and factories.  Visitors are welcomed into the family's homes and neighborhoods with a moment of reflection in the kitchen, a visit to the pub, or a seat in a local Church.  The Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum's diverse regional collections represent all facets of work, life and values of the region's ethnic communities.
