Something we often hear from first-time visitors is that they had no idea that there was so much to do here at Meadowcroft. We are a museum that tells the story of humans using the natural resources of Cross Creek Valley for roughly 16,000 radiocarbon years (ca. 19,000 calendar years). With such an exhaustive timespan covered, of course there is plenty to do! The full Meadowcroft experience is a journey through time that presents snapshots of the major cultural changes in western Pennsylvania.
