We hope everyone is staying safe & healthy!

Virtual Museum Tour

Although the Heritage Center is closed at this time, there are many monthly expenses for which our non-profit organization is still responsible. Also, while we are closed, we hope that work can proceed to make critical and necessary changes to our interactive exhibits, but we need your help to meet all of these expenses. A contribution of any amount would be very much appreciated. Please send your donation to the Schuylkill River Heritage Center, P.O. Box 427, Phoenixville, PA 19460.

Thank you for understanding our circumstances and supporting the Schuylkill River Heritage Center. We hope everyone stays safe and healthy during this difficult and troubling time.
