Facing down winds of up to 78 mph. Controlling a robotic dinosaur with the same hydraulic technology behind amusement park rides. Such experiences only skim the surface of the 100-plus attractions available in Da Vinci Science Center's 10,000-square-foot, two-story exhibit space. Here, other hands-on activities run the gamut from assembling models of carbon nanotubes to navigating a 72-foot tunnel in complete darkness or with the aid of a friendly firefly.

But exploring exhibits isn't the only way to interact with science at Da Vinci Science Center. For visitors of all ages, the center sponsors nearly three-dozen programs including Science on the Move, which brings experiments directly to schools and community centers. In addition, Da Vinci Science Center hosts several events throughout the year such as Ice Cream Wars, where participants create tasty treats using liquid nitrogen as a freezing agent.

Despite being open to the public since 1930, Lost River Caverns has been kept in immaculate condition, retaining a youthful character that belies its close to 250,000-year existence. Step underground and peer at the profusion of stalactites, stalagmites, fluorescent minerals, and other natural crystal formations filling the cavern’s five chambers—including the Crystal Chapel, which radiates with residual love from the more than 80 wedding ceremonies it’s hosted since 1949. As dripping sounds echo in the distance, you’ll encounter the eponymous lost river, whose waters originate from an unknown source before disappearing back into Earth’s great Fiji bottle. You’ll also get wise to the Lost River Caverns’ colorful history and the odd ways it’s been used by bootleggers, college fraternities, and fantasy fellowships looking to level up by fighting the caverns’ many tonberries. Once you emerge back into daylight, ogle the rare fossils, unique minerals, and gems that abound inside the Gilman Museum before relaxing over a bite in Picnic Grove, whose covered bridge overlooks the leisurely flowing Silver Creek.

When the car industry was just blossoming, many vehicles were manufactured in Pennsylvania. The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles preserves that legacy, with exhibits stretching back through the 19th and 20th centuries. Established in 1965 by Paul Hafer?a 57-year industry vet?and his wife Erminie, the museum exclusively features vehicles produced in Pennsylvania and none that simply had "Pennsylvania or bust" scribbled on their rear views.

  • Eye Catcher: vintage truck bodies built by Boyertown Auto Body Works, whose former factory building serves as the museum's main gallery
  • Permanent Mainstay: a restored 1921 Sunoco Gas Station complete restoration, along with two Fry Visible Gas pumps, a kerosene pump, an oil pump, and signage
  • Don't Miss: the Fegely's Reading Diner, a restoration of a 1938 Jerry O'Mahony roadside eatery
  • Hidden Gem: an 1827 Conestoga wagon, built in Berks County, PA
  • Past Exhibits: the museum's been visited by such luminaries as Nellybelle, the 1946 Willys Jeep from The Roy Rogers Show.
  • Annual Event: over Labor Day weekend, the museum hosts Duryea Day, an annual antique and classic car show, featuring live bands, food vendors, and a flea market.

At the turn of the 19th century, it became all too clear to historian and archaeologist Henry Mercer that handmade objects were being cast aside for machine-made things. He wanted to help preserve the pre-industrial way of life, and so he built a museum for his artifacts adjacent to his own home, Fonthill Castle. Today, Fonthill Castle is a National Historic Landmark and a museum in its own right, displaying handcrafted art both made by Mercer and collected by him during his world travels.

  • The Building: the concrete castle comprises 44 rooms, including 18 fireplaces and around 200 windows; its vastness earned it a feature on A&E's America's Castles
  • Crown Jewel: all through the castle, guests will find interior walls, floors, and ceilings adorned with Mercer's handcrafted tiles
  • Don't Miss: 14,000 of Mercer's collected artifacts, including tiles, prints, textiles, and back issues of So You Own A Castle magazine
  • Hidden Gem: in one hallway ceiling, Henry Mercer inscribed a thank-you note addressed directly to everyone who helped build his home?including a horse
  • Annual Events: in the summer, there's Fonthill Castle Beer Fest, where guests pair local beers with local foods; in the winter, the castle is decked out for the holidays in Victorian-era splendor
  • While You?re in the Neighborhood: tour Henry's labor of love, the Mercer Museum next door, which houses his collection of pre-Industrial Age handmade objects
